Lyra: Oh, well that's nice.
Since we don't have city-powering arcane power planets, each transit would require a long recharge after each use, and have only enough to maintain a portal sufficiently stable to send a pony-sized object through and back each time.
It's not surprising, really, how difficult it is to use this portal; the quantum theory of parallel universes states that it is suppose to be impossible for information from one parallel universe to transit to another parallel universe. But no-pony told the portal maker that, did they?
Now, one can only imagine what the maker used it for, and what potential applications we can have for this if we can solve the power generation problem..."

On the plus side, with Twilight's success in modifying the mirror portal, interdimensional travel has become practical for the exploration, exploitation, colonization and trading with inhabitants of other worlds across the myriad multiverse. Think of the massive social/political/cultural/economic transformation of Equestria with the literally infinite horizon now open before all of Ponykind!
To be honest, the comic series, and the rest of the FIM expanded universe, had already wiped out a LOT of my headcanons (Though it is reasonably good in quality). I'm starting to consider ignoring it...
*Meanwhile, on the other side of the mirror...*
On a sidenote, has anyone ever camped out in line waiting for tickets to some really big concert to come on sale? Fun times!
BTW, exactly HOW LONG is 30 moons!!? :/
