In the food fight the food covering Peter and the Lost Boys changes between shots. For example when Rufio throws the coconut the food on everyone immediately looks much dryer than before, and some of them have clean patches around their eyes that weren't there seconds earlier, these are both very noticeable on Peter.

Factual errors 

In J.M. Barrie's novel, "Peter and Wendy" (The original Peter Pan Story), Peter states that he cut off Hook's right hand, forcing him to fight lefty. However, in this film, Hook is missing his left hand.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In the showdown between the Lost Boys and the pirates on the pirate ship, the sun is directly behind both of the two facing groups - there are two suns and two moons in Neverland.

Plot holes 

After the dedication, Peter, Moira and Wendy approach the house and notice the broken glass at the front door (indicating someone has broken in). As they ascend the steps, there are slashes in the wallpaper as if Captain Hook has scraped his hook along the walls as he went up to capture the children. Captain Hook's hook is on his left hand, not his right. It wouldn't make sense for him to have done this on his way out, after having captured the children (plus, the slashes were made in an upward motion).

When Peter talks to Tinkerbell through the window of the clock house he puts his face right into the window. The outside shots show some kind of balcony/shelf outside the window, making it impossible for him to stand this close; especially when he puts his finger in his mouth like a thermometer as his arm comes from below, through where this shelf would be.

When Tinkerbell first encounters adult Peter in Wendy's home, Tinkerbell pulls a rug out from under Peter's feet, causing him to fall on his back. However Peter's feet leave the rug (the actor prematurely jumping) before it is pulled from beneath him.

Spoilers 

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

In the scene when Hook tries to shoot himself, the pistol fires when the two men struggle for it and the shot sets on fire and sinks the toy pirate ship in the scale model of Neverland (a sinister omen of things to come). As the toy ship sinks, the pole/stand used to drag it underwater can be seen.
