** The world of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaLinksAwakening'' was a dream of the Wind Fish, and Link had to wake it up from inside in order to leave. If you beat the game without dying, at the end of the credits you see the character Marin flying around. The implication in this case is not that it wasn't a dream, but that one person from the dream became real (having wished during the game to become a seagull and travel the world.) The DX version changes this to a picture of Marin that fades into a seagull, which flies off. You get the ocarina in this game in a dream, then you wake up and still have it.

When he wakes up in the morning, he accidentally rips the pocket of his bedrobe the exact same way he did when he was woken up by the arrival of the train at the beginning of the film, implying that he dreamed the whole thing. Then his sister finds the sleigh bell he got from Santa at the North Pole under the Christmas tree...
