Visible crew/equipment: When the green haired mermaid swims toward Peter to kiss him you can see a diver behind her among the seaweed, trying not to be seen. This is very visible on DVD but not as visible on Netflix. (00:48:26)

Continuity mistake: During the school play, at the beginning of the movie, Peter's phone rings and Moira stops smiling and turns to face him twice as he answers it. (00:02:06)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the school play Moira turns to Peter and says "Watch your daughter, she's stealing the show" and you can see two fathers stood behind Peter filming the play. The shot then changes to a wider angle of the audience and these two men have suddenly stopped filming and their cameras are nowhere to be seen. (00:01:14)

Continuity mistake: When Pockets is shooting paint at the pirates, he sprays yellow paint on a pirate's face on the right, who crouches and touches his face blinded. Shot changes and not only is the painting gone, but the pirate is calmly sword fighting with a kid. (01:53:38)

Character mistake: When Hook has Pan under control, the kids start to say "I believe in you" in turns. The second one, a red haired boy, can't help staring at the camera.

Revealing mistake: When Peter sees Tink in a night dress, the shots from behind reveal an obvious doll. Note how it does not have any fluffy hair (or any hair at all) as opposed to Tink's.

Continuity mistake: Before the crocodile is about to fall on Hook, he is either lying on a shadowy place or a sunny one, depending on the shot, no continuity at all.

Continuity mistake: After the clock falls on the ground and Hook trips over it, he ends up kneeled, head sunk, and starts to remove his cape. When the angle changes he is now lying down, face up, and removing the cape again.

Revealing mistake: During the pirate ship scene where Peter's kids are lifted in the net, the sea in the background is a blatant backdrop with a very obvious blue painting with zero detail.

Question: Is the food fight scene completely imaginary, or are the Lost Boys actually able to will food into existence by imagining it? I always thought it was the latter growing up and we as the audience didn't see it until Peter, as the audience's proxy, saw it for himself, but any YouTube videos I watch about this movie all seem to think all the food was just in everyone's collective imaginations.

Answer: Neverland very much runs on "If you believe, it will happen" which is what Tink means during the meal when she says "If you don't imagine yourself as Peter Pan you won't be Peter Pan." So by the rules of Neverland, as soon as Peter believed it was real it was then real. The dinner was trying to teach him to believe as, in Neverland, if you don't believe it then it won't happen.
