  • At the end of the episode it is night, and Dora and Boots fall asleep themselves too.
  • Dora and Boots don't sing the Travel Song in this episode, they're not supposed to sing it anyway because Baby Bear is trying not to sleep, that's why they're singing a song about her trying to stay awake.
  • Isa and Tico do not appear in this episode.
  • This is the only episode in which both the Fiesta Trio play their fanfare quietly and the entire "We Did It" song and instrumentals is performed quietly due to the bears being already asleep in the cave when it is sung, unlike in Boots' Cuddly Dinosaur, in which only the last lines are performed quietly, the fanfare and the rest of the song are performed normally.
    • This is the second episode in which the "We Did It" song has different instrumentals, the first being "Dora's Moonlight Adventure".
    • Also, the Fiesta Trio did not play their fanfare until they got out of the cave due to the bears being already asleep.
