Continuity mistake: In the Sorcerer's Apprentice piece, Mickey starts waving his hands and fingers at a broom to make it come to life. In one shot, you can see that his sleeves slide forward and cover his hands. In the next shot, the shadow of his hands on the wall shows that his sleeves are on his wrists again and his fingers are waving fine. There was no time between shots for this to have happened.

Other mistake: In the intro to the Pastoral Symphony, the narrator identifies the deity who cloaks the world with Night to be Morpheus, who is the Greek god of sleep and dreams. However, the character in the animation is fairly obviously female, with long hair, eye shadow, and lipstick. My theory is that the character was intended by the art team to be Nyx, the Greek goddess of Night. Night would be a more likely candidate to be making it nighttime across the world, while Morpheus would be more likely to put people to sleep or send them dreams.
