The interior of the house changes, such as the location of the dining room table at the end compared to what it was like during the scene when the Ghost of Christmas Present brought Scrooge over. For example, the dining room table is near the front door at the end, but earlier it wasn't.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Jacob Marley (Goofy) tells Scrooge that he will be visited by 3 spirits, he holds up 2 fingers instead of 3. This is more than likely part of Jacob Marley having the same humorous traits as Goofy.

Bob Cratchit's salary is mentioned as being two shillings and half a penny per day. In the original story, his salary was mentioned as being fifteen shillings per week. With Sundays off, that makes 2.5 shillings, or two shillings and sixpence per day. That said, "Mickey's Christmas Carol" is more an adaptation of the original story rather than a direct retelling, so there can be room for slight differences as in this case.
