Continuity mistake: During the tub scene John has foam on his left cheek, but before the dolphins appear a back shot shows foam all around his face. Also, when the dolphins jump over the boat foam suddenly appears on the right side of his body.

Continuity mistake: When Mary is about to dive in the tub she carries the shampoo bottle with the label unseen. Then it cuts to a closeup of her placing the bottle on a shelf and the label is visible. Angle changes and the label disappears again.

Continuity mistake: When the movie begins the smallest boy holds a neat pile of towels. When the shot changes they're messed up. Then they swap back to neat.

Other mistake: As established in the original and this film, when the Admiral fires his cannon, everything in the house falls off walls and mantles, and everything needs to be caught to prevent them from being damaged. However, when he fires his cannon as Mary Poppins and the children are going out to have the bowl repaired, Michael has already left for work, Jane and Ellen are standing outside, and Mary, the children, are getting onto Jack's bike - leaving no-one in the house to catch the falling objects which would therefore all be smashed or damaged.
