  • To the Treehouse is listed as "Tree House".
  • The Chocolate Tree is listed as just "Chocolate Tree".
  • This isn't the first DVD to offer Spanish or French audio, the actual first DVD to do so is Dora's Christmas! for Spanish and It's a Party for French.
    • However this is the first DVD to feature all three audio options (English, Spanish, and French).
  • In some international releases, the DVD was titled, "Best Friends" instead of "Dora's First Trip".
  • Coincidentally, all four episodes were written by co-creator Eric Weiner.
  • An Amazon review by Fátima Ptacek wrote that she bought the DVD for one episode. Specifically, The Chocolate Tree
  • Unlike other DVDs where French and Spanish audio is also available, none of the episodes use their respective International intros, and instead only use the normal intro with the Nick Jr. Butterflies present and with text (on the Season 1-2 International intro, the logo is removed and replaced with a Nickelodeon Butterfly logo. For the Season 3-4 International intros, the Nick Jr. Butterflies are kept, but they are blank, and the same Nickelodeon Butterfly from the Season 1-2 International intro appears). On DVDs with other language audio, the International intros are used, but this is not the case with this DVD.
  • This DVD is released 1 day and 18 years before the premiere of Dora's new generation series.
