Continuity mistake: When Scuttle rips the seashell necklace from Vanessa's neck, the shattered pieces land at Ariel's feet, but a few seconds later they're gone.

Factual error: When Louis the chef starts to sing he mentions typical French things like "Maurice Chevalier", a french actor who became very famous as of the 1920's. Though the movie is timeless, the clothes and lifestyle (pirates, ships, horse carriages) set it long before the 20th and even the 19th century.
