Hi dear friends and teachers!
Is there any difference between Dream and fantasy in meanig?
Thanks a lot.
Is there any real difference between the nouns fantasy and dream?
At night we have dreams, we don't have fantasies.
Fantasy is a genre of movies, books, etc.
If we have a "dream" for the future, there is usually (but not always) a chance it will come true. If we just have a "fantasy" it is usually something that is just nice to think about but almost certainly will not come true.
There are more difference, too. Are you using these words in a specific context?

Thanks for the answer.
Actually this is the sentence in which I want to use one the words mentioned:
I wish I could be a butterfly, so I would be flying now. What a charming dream/fantasy.
Which would you choose, now that we've explained it?
Sorry for the other thread. The time that I was trying to create this topic I was disconected so I thought that it hadn't been posted.
