Factual error: When Kevin goes in the limo, the front desk manager attempts to process a charge on the credit card, which comes back as "stolen." No credit card terminal flashes "stolen" when a credit card has been compromised or cancelled. The machine would simply decline the transaction, much like if the credit limit had been exceeded, or tell the merchant to phone for authorization.
Factual error: When Harry and Marv arrive for the first time at Kevin's "funhouse", they look up to the roof and spot Kevin taking a Polaroid of them. The flash brightly illuminates them both, but the building looks to be at least 30 feet high; a basic Polaroid camera does not have a flash strong enough to reach such a distance (plus the street is already illuminated by lamps and Christmas lights).

Factual error: The AA flight number to Miami is a 4 digit number beginning with a 5. These are regional flight numbers but the family flew on a mainline 767.
Continuity mistake: In the first film, it is mentioned several times that Kevin is 8 years old. However, in this film it is stated that he is 10. When his parents are in the Miami airport security office, they say that he was left alone last Christmas. That would make him 9. Both films take place the same days, from about three days before Christmas until Christmas morning, so even if Kevin is born around Christmas time this is still a mistake.
