From the Super Mario Wiki
Dozing Sands is the desert area that appears in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. On Pi'illo Island, it is on the bottom right corner. Many Brocks here mine with their boss, Britta, in order to turn the area into a tourist attraction. The name is a pun on dozing off to sleep as well as the bulldozer (referencing the fact that it's a construction site).
Mario and Luigi head here after Antasma and Bowser say they will take the Dream Stone and make it grant their wishes. The Dream Stone is supposedly held here in Dozing Sands. Mario and Luigi learn that they must free the Deco Pi'illos from their respective dream worlds in order to progress up the large sand-flow where the Dream Stone may possibly be. After making their way up there, Mario and Luigi save Britta when she's attacked by Torkscrew by defeating him. Afterwards, they find out that the Dream Stone was already stolen. The Bros. use the Dreampoint where the Dream Stone was and enter Dreamy Dozing Sands to ask the Dream Stone's Spirit about the location of the Dream Stone.
