* Maleficent's outrage at being snubbed makes more sense when you realize that Aurora's christening was public event open to all, not invitation only. Being kicked out of a public place is SeriousBusiness even today and was much more so for medieval christenings. King Stefan was essentially declaring Maleficent a public menace and siding with the good faeries against her. Understandable stance to take against a CardCarryingVillain but unfortunately it seems it was NotQuiteTheRightThing.

* Aurora and Phillip's love at first sight makes a lot more sense when you remember that part of the curse Maleficent placed on Aurora as a baby was that she would be "beloved by all who know her" and that Merriweather's gift requires true loves kiss, there fore there needed to be true love in place.

*** Afraid of ''everything''? On the contrary, Maleficents curse was [[ExactWords quite specific]] about a ''spindle'' being what would hurt Aurora, so telling her she should avoid ''those'', instead of making her a social recluse unaware of her royal heritage, would have made more sense.

** Or, more simply, the fairies just can't turn invisible. They're never shown to have that power at all. Maleficent seems to be able to become intangible or diffuse into the aether, but, then, she has power gained from Hell itself, and her magic far exceeds what the good fairies are capable of, so it's not surprising she can do something they can't.

** Maleficent in the beginning is rather attractive for an evil fairy, satisfied with cursing the baby and getting her revenge. When she starts getting more and more desperate as the years go by, she starts looking uglier and more haggard. Losing sleep over it?

** When Flora announces their plan, Merryweather says "but I've never baked a ''fancy'' cake" to which Fauna replies that she'll be cooking. That seems to imply that Merryweather did the cooking. It was presumably very basic so Merryweather has limited knowledge of the kitchen from sixteen years. Perhaps she or Fauna sewed Aurora's dresses too. Since it's the last day, I got the impression the fairies were switching up the jobs and doing what they'd never done before for fun.
* Is it ever said how the fairies knew to search Maleficent's dungeons for Aurora's one true love? Did they just remember the "once upon a dream" boy Rose met was going to be at the cottage that evening, go there, find the place ransacked, assume the worst, and go to her castle?

to:

** It's easily within her power to keep both of them alive indefinitely, even if she does mean a literal century. And Maleficent's curse would be broken ''eventually'', so why wouldn't she make her triumph complete by reuniting the two lovers in such a way that they could never be happy?

*** Except that doesn't answer the question. Why didn't they just wait until AFTER Aurora's 16th birthday to re-introduce her to society?
*** The point of the above seems to be to say that in many versions of the story, the princess is not removed from society to begin with - instead, spinning wheels and/or spindles are simply kept well away from her until the evil fairy deliberately puts one within her reach. Actually hiding her was an invention of the Disney film, where the blame can probably be laid mostly on King Stephen being really impatient to get his daughter back - the fairies were waiting until the sun had set to actually ''present'' her, but in order to do so as soon as the sun had set meant bringing her back to her father's castle earlier in the day. Learning that she'd fallen for (they thought) some random guy in the forest and was planning to meet him that night probably helped in the decision to go ahead and leave the cottage, too.\\

* So waiting at least an extra day would have been better.
** Maybe they couldn't. Maleficent's curse forced them, her magic was far more powerful than their's and she said it would happen by certain time and it happened at almost the last possible moment.
