When Twilight Sparkle and her friends arrive in Hope Hollow, they find the town and all its residents completely devoid of color – their dream vacation is starting to feel more like a nightmare!

Pinkie Pie can't wait to share her new Ice Cream Museum, full of all kinds of flavors and toppings, with the gathered residents of Ponyville. The only problem is, she takes so long describing it, everything inside has melted by the time the doors finally open.
When Fluttershy gives the students ladybugs to care for in a school assignment, Twilight freaks out. Afraid of ladybugs since she was a filly, she finally goes to guidance counsellor Starlight for some help getting over her fear. Starlight hypnotizes Twilight, but Pinkie bursts in just as Twilight is receptive to subliminal suggestions - resulting in Twilight gaining a strange impulse to fly ladybug kites and yell at them.
After Fluttershy is voted the School of Friendship's Teacher of the Month for the sixteenth time in a row, she reveals to Rainbow Dash and Applejack that the secret is to make school classes fun and enjoyable instead of boring.
Twilight's spring allergies manifest as a cold in her horn, causing strange and random effects to happen whenever she sneezes.
Rarity is tired of her mane style and vows to copy Celestia's look. But no matter what magic or assistance she tries, nothing makes her mane do what she wants. Finally, Spike provides the solution, fanning Rarity's mane to make it billow out behind her. Now, if he can just keep doing that FOREVER, things will be perfect!
A dark force threatens Ponyville, and the Mane 6 embark on an unforgettable journey beyond Equestria where they meet new friends and exciting challenges on a quest to use the magic of friendship to save their home.
