Continuity mistake: When the hare tells Alice it's very rude to show up uninvited the pink teapot to her right disappears and the spoon swaps from straight to bent.

Continuity mistake: The colour and position of the teapots on the Mad Hatter's table is an absolute chaos: First they're pink, yellow and white, then in the close-up green and blue teapots appear. When Alice stands by the head of the table the colours change again and they stop moving despite the music still sounding.

Continuity mistake: The Cheshire cat says "of course he's mad too" while standing on the middle part of a very long branch. Shot swaps to a front angle and the branch is shorter and he is really close to the tree trunk.

Continuity mistake: When Alice becomes a giant a wide shot of the garden shows the main entrance's broken door leaning on her left foot. First of all, the rabbit managed to open it before she burst it with her right foot. Second of all, when she shrinks, the door appears magically back in its place. And no, it's not a different door because at 00:21:05 we see the house and there is no door where her left foot later comes out through.

Suggested correction: All throughout the growth sequence, the rabbit was shown by Alice's right foot. It could be possible this specific door on the left is a different door altogether.

Continuity mistake: The rabbit's grandfather clock that was in the garden about to be burnt magically appears inside the house when Alice shrinks.

Continuity mistake: When Alice eats the cookie in the rabbit's place her foot grows huge along the stairs, down to the entrance and out to the garden without knocking a single object except the poor rabbit. When the angle changes to a shot outside the house suddenly all of the furniture has magically appeared out of nowhere next to the shoe.

Mad Hatter: What's the matter my dear, don't you care for tea?
Alice: Why, yes. I'm very fond of tea.
March Hare: If you don't care for tea, you could at least make polite conversation.
