* AbsenteeActor:
** Applejack is the only main character with a prominent role in this episode. Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Spike only get brief cameos (with only Pinkie getting a speaking role), while Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy are nowhere to be seen.
** Braeburn returns, but he's relegated to several background cameos, with his only clear line being an "Uh-huh" in a deep voice.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: "Feathers on a goat!" "Gathering goat-feathers" is a term coined by Ellis Parker Butler for activities that distract someone from their own work or the bigger picture. In this case, Applejack's attempts to make the reunion as exciting as possible distract her and everypony else from the family bonding that's supposed to take place at reunions.

!!Tropes present in this episode: [[YMMV/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS3E9AppleFamilyReunion YMMV tropes here.]]!!Tropes:



* WritersCannotDoMath: Granny Smith states that the last Apple family reunion was 100 moons ago. Since the phrase "moon" refers to a complete 28 day lunar cycle that would mean the last reunion was 2800 days (7.66 years) ago. But we saw the Apple family reunion in the [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E1MareInTheMoon pilot episode.]] So either its been seven years since Twilight first came to Ponyville or Equestria has a weird lunar cycle or Applejack mixed up the reason why her family was there in the pilot episode as she was overworked when she told Twilight about this and they were there for some other event.
** If lunar quarters - waxing, full, waning, new - are reckoned as separate "moons", then that would be just over two years, which would make the episode timing spot on. Of course, then the ponies would be calling their weeks "months", since month is a cognate, and this conflicts with temporal terminology used in other episodes.
** Or maybe they just mean 'nights'?
