How would you say, "you are dreaming?" As in, you are imagining that you are going to get that, but you are not. "W'ap reve" apparently doesn't translate the same. Mèsi pou tout ou fè!

You could say:
W'ap tronpe tèt ou.
W'ap pase tèt ou nan betiz.
You're fooling yourself if you think that 'this' is going to happen.

There are many other unconventional ways to say this in Creole, depending on the situation.
And instead of 'w ap reve', people might say, 'Ou nan rèv.'  or 'Ou dwe nan rèv.' which means the same as 'you must be dreaming'.
