Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World picture

Continuity mistake: When Meeko is running to Pocahontas on the ship you see the railing of the ship is not solid behind her, then you see Meeko vomiting over the side of the ship but the railing is now solid.

The Prince of Egypt picture

Continuity mistake: After Moses accidentally kills the guard at the temple, someone points out Moses as the killer and they point straight up. However, we see a shot from behind Moses while he stares at the fallen guard and the angle in that shot between where Moses stands and the fallen guard and the crowd around him is inconsistent with the scene where someone points Moses out. The body and group have moved from just below the scaffolding to several feet away.

Cats picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the song "Old Deuteronomy" watch the positions of Jo Gibb and Drew Varley flip flop in the background between long and close shots. Soon afterward, Cassandra slides down to the stage in a closeup and immediately slides down again in the long shot (while singing different lyrics). Apparently the long and close shots were often filmed in different takes and the choreography and positioning of actors were sometimes not matched very well.

Continuity mistake: When Elwood, Mac, and Buster arrive at the Monster Truck show to sing. We see Mac get out of the car. If you look carefully in the background you can see Elwood already going up to the stage. Then the camera switched to show Elwood getting out of the car.
