Also, in my eyes I don't see Celestia as Atlantis. I see it as R'lyeh. I do love my Lovecraftian horror....
Morganthe is a nod to Arachne, pretty much the avatar of spiders. That's pretty much the only thing I know about Morganthe, since I'm only in the lunarium, haha.
In Stormriven Hall, there's a giant eye peeking through the rubble. Possibly another reference to Lovecraftian horror, as Cthullhu was a giant tentacle monster sort of like a squid/octopus. I'm sorry, I'm getting off-topic D:

Just this Christmas season, there is a wizard selling Christmas items in the shopping district, and his name is Felix Navidad. The word is very similar and sounding like feliz navidad which is the word merry Christmas in Spanish.

There is also a very passive reference to Winnie the Pooh in Austrilund while collecting honey from the bee hive.

Um... I cant believe noone has said this, but in marleybone, there is a man named the proffesor, standing next to a red 1950s police box that says telegraph on it. This is obviously a easter egg, refering to the british 50 year old show, (Still running) Doctor Who. The Doctor has a long scarf, a blue 1950s telephone box called the Tardis, and his 7th form had a cane. He also has a bowtie, which is from his famous quote, while in his eleventh form, "Bowties are cool." I find this happy, and interesting that the programmers, wrote in a british fandom into this, but Whatever. And I REALLY Doctor Who

I've heard there's a quest called "The final countdown" in dragonspyre, "The final countdown" is a classical song but I don't know the writer or singer.

Let's not forget the Easter egg to Percy Jackson the Lightning Thief. You can get a lightning bolt weapon from Mount Olympus that looks very similar to the one in Percy Jackson.

Azteca one of the hardest worlds in the game. It is based off of a lot of Aztec and Mayan civilizations. Mooshu is based off of ancient China. Marlybone is based off of not ancient but all throughout time England.
Grizzelheim I know is based off of something but i'm not sure plz feel free to tell me. Zafaria is based off a lot of Africa. (as I stated in my previous reply) Avalon is based off a lot of King Arthur and The Knights of
the Roundtable. Celestia is based a lot off of celestial studies. Dragonspyre not sure feel free to tell me what it is based off of if at all based off of anything. That goes for Wizard City as well.

Hoped I added onto it Sincerely Robert Nightwhisper

Now lvl 86 wizard.

So long. Farewell. Until we meet again.

In Avalon that is a reference to Camelot where Ambrose was before he was headmaster also Ambrose's name is a pun on Merlin Ambrose (Merlin TV series and book reference) a wizard who lived in king author's castle and in his court (As seen during the dungeon with Young Morganth) Morganth is also a reference to Morgan le fay the step daughter of uther pen dragon (Pendragon being a reference to the king of Camelot and father to king Arthur

Personally IMO that's not an Easter egg at all, just because a movie has someone holding a lightning bolt and so does a game doesn't mean the bolt in the game is an Easter egg, also I'll be on the lookout for Easter eggs

like doctor who eh? well same here. i saw this Easter egg and freaked out. but there is a little more you can do with this. if you position yourself behind the "professor" and pan your camera to the telephone box, you can in fact read the sign posted on the box. i wont say what it says here but it is a nice nod off to the show.

There is a quest in Grizzleheim called "Full Grizzle Jacket"

"Full Metal Jacket" is a famous Kubrick film

It was quite a surprise to see kind of movie referenced. But then again, Kubrick deserves it.

I found 2 cool references in Khrysalis:

In Last Wood, Chihooly Glass-shaper's name "Chihooly" is a spin on Dale Chihuly, a renown glass maker who makes amazing glass sculptures.

Ghost Dog and his cheat "Way of the Samoorai" is a reference to the 1999 film, Ghost Dog: Way of the Samoorai. From the description I read, it was about a mafia man learning the ways of the samoorai. I would believe the Italian accent Ghost Dog possesses is also referencing that Italian mafia accent.

I skipped all the other comments, but I don't think anyone has posted anything about the quest early in Wizard City called; "Saving Private O'Ryan," which is a parody of "Saving Private Ryan."

This ones a little obvious but in Marylebone there is a dog standing next to a telephone box named the professor who is obviously a reference to doctor who. He is also wearing a long scarf just like the one the fourth doctor wore.

Admit guys: Cyrus is Severus! (They even sound the same.)

They have the same know it all, bored, deep voice.
They have the same ways to make your life worse.
They have the same hard classes.
They have the same ways to try and convince the headmaster to expel you.

Face it: Cyrus and Snape are identical twins. Just teaching at different schools.
Any other things you've noticed in wizard101 that exists outside wizard101?

Here another easter egg that no one mentioned.
Did you know that the world in WIzard101 called "Azteca" was named a group of people called "The Aztecs".
The buildings,the decoration,the design of their clothing was all related to Wizard101. The only difference was that it didn't had any relationship to dinosaurs.

The speech given by Alwynn WoodWard in the quest "First through the Breach" before you break down the Apiary wall in Lost Wood is very closely paraphrased from the famous:

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;

Or close the wall up with our English dead!

In peace, there ’s nothing so becomes a man,

As modest stillness and humility:

But when the blast of war blows in our ears,

Then imitate the action of the tiger
;

Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood.

Wm Shakespeare, Henry V, Act III Scene I
