Twilight (Clover the Clever) mentions that Stars Swirl the Bearded was her mentor. Star Swirl the Bearded is who Twilight dressed up as back in "Luna Eclipsed."
When the ponies start singing the Heart Carol, the flag behind them disappears.
When Rainbow Dash (Commander Hurricane) is frozen, her wings keep changing from sticking out to folded in between shots.
Derpy cameo: She pops out from behind the curtains before the play starts and waves to the audience.
The flag the ponies put up at the end of the play has images of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, even though the play is supposed to take place long before they became rulers.
Towards the end, as Fluttershy (Private Pansy), Twilight (Clover the Clever), and Applejack (Smart Cookie) are freezing, Fluttershy expressed that she "really really really really disliked" Commander Hurricane. She referred to her as "her", even though in the beginning she addressed Commander Hurricane as "Sir". (However, in traditional military practice, a response to a female commander can use "Sir," although its use is uncommon and viewed as disrespectful in most cases.)
The flag that the ponies put up at the end of the play shows Princess Celestia with green hair, while in other illustrations of her, her hair is pink.
During the play, Rarity calls the part of the land she found Unicornia. This was also the name of a city from the My Little Pony film, My Little Pony Crystal Princess: The Runaway Rainbow.
Fluttershy (Private Pansy): Well, I don't hate you...I actually hate Commander Hurricane a lot more than I hate you guys.
Twilight Sparkle (Clover the Clever) and Applejack (Smart Cookie): (giggling)
Fluttershy (Private Pansy): Actually, I don't really hate her, I just really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really dislike her.
Rainbow Dash (Commander Hurricane): I planted my flag first!
Rarity (Princess Platinum): Did not!
Rainbow Dash (Commander Hurricane): Did too!
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): I planted mine earlier than first!
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): The air! The trees! The dirt. This dirt is the dirtiest dirt in the whole dirt world!
Applejack (Smart Cookie): It's such a relief to me that you're in charge of this map.
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): Relief?! (rewinds) You don't need relief! If anypony needs relief around here it's me! I'm a chancellor! I'm a big shot! You're just my...umm...my w-
Applejack (Smart Cookie): Secretary.
Pinkie Pie: I spy somepony eating a gingerbread house! (buys a gingerbread house and eats it) And it's me!
Rarity (Princess Platinum): Could you just stand back and give me my royal space?
Rainbow Dash (Commander Hurricane): You mean like this, Your Highness?!
(sticks hoof in front of her)
Rarity (Princess Platinum): Indeed not! (points to ground) You see this invisible line?
Rarity (Princess Platinum): (to Twilight) I refuse to get my gown wet. I have no intention of arriving at my new land looking like a bedraggled earth pony, worse yet a rough-and-tumble pegasus! I, for one, have no intention of stooping down to their level...on the other hand, I have no trouble watching you stoop down.
Twilight (Clover the Clever): (groans)
Rarity (Princess Platinum): (while crossing stream) And do watch the gown, darling. It's worth more than all of the books in your library.
Spike: And so the paradise that the ponies had found was soon lost! Buried beneath a thick blanket of snow, and hard feelings. Instead of beautiful, it was blizzardy! Instead of wonderful, it was wintry! Instead of spectacular, it was snowtacular! Instead of-
Random Pony: We get it! Move on!
Fluttershy (Private Pansy): What a view! I can see my future house from up here!
Rainbow Dash (Commander Hurricane): All I wanna know is why the earth ponies are hogging all the food!
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): Us?! We're not hogging all the food, you are!
Oh wait, you're right. It's us!
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): In the name of the earth ponies, I think I'm gonna call this new place, Dirtville!
Applejack (Smart Cookie): How 'bout...Earth?
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): ...Earth! Congratulations to me for thinking of it!
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): Oh my gosh! Hold on to your hooves! I am just about to be brilliant!
Applejack (Smart Cookie): (under her breath) That'd be a first.
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): Are you suggesting that I'm reading the map wrong?
Applejack (Smart Cookie): Absolutely not, Your Chancellorness. It's just that there are holes in the map and-
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): Of course! How else could I see where I was going?
Applejack (Smart Cookie): Yeah, uh-
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): Or talk? I need to be able to talk! I mean, how would we survive if I just suddenly shut up?
Applejack (Smart Cookie): Heaven forbid that should happen, Your Chancellorship. It's just that the map is also...upside down.
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): I got a newsflash for you, Cookie: the Earth is round. There is no up or down.
Applejack (Smart Cookie): (regarding Pinkie using the chimney) Wouldn't it have been easier to use the door, Chancellor?
Pinkie Pie (Chancellor Puddinghead): Maybe for you, Smart Cookie, but I am a chancellor! I was elected because I know how to think outside the box, which means I can also think inside the chimney! Can you think inside a chimney?
Twilight Sparkle: We're getting closer!
Rainbow Dash: I can hardly wait!
Fluttershy: I'm so excited, I... I feel like shouting! (quietly) Whoo-hoo!

When Spike mentions how Smart Cookie, Clover the Clever and Private Pansy sang what would become winter carols near the end of the play, the background music sounds similar to "Greensleeves", and old English folk song. The tune was popularly utilised in the Christmas carol "What Child is This?" composed in 1865.
