Corrected entry: As the Captain is about to enter the medical tent to see 'Ping' a flag is noticeable on the side. It is Japan's flag, not China's.

Correction: At the time when this movie takes place, that was NOT Japan's flag. Japan's flag at this time was a red circle with red sun-like rays coming from it. Besides, even if that wasn't how it was, you can see that the red circle on the tent is not on a rectangular white field, like your average flag is, but on a white, square-shaped field that is standing on one corner, like a diamond.

Corrected entry: When Mushu is going to wake up the Great Stone Dragon, the "head ancestor" tosses Mushu the gong but not the mallet. When Mushu is walking out, he has the gong and the mallet.

Correction: There's a slight lapse in time there, it cuts from Mushu being hit in the face by the gong to him walking down the stairs. In that time he could have been tossed the mallet.

Corrected entry: In the scene near the end where Mulan and Shan Yu are on the roof, Mulan manages to grab his sword and uses it to pin him down by his cape. After Shan Yu dies, the Emperor presents Mulan with Shan Yu's sword. How did he get it if it was on the roof?

Correction: If you watch when Mulan jumps off the rope and she lands on the captain, right after she hits the ground and right before Mushu hits the ground, the sword falls from the roof and hits the ground right behind where Mushu hits the next second.

Other mistake: When Crickie is typing the letter for Mushu he has ink on his feet yet when he jumps on the table to wipe off his feet there aren't any ink footprints where his foot was.
