* MilestoneCelebration: ''[[WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyDiamondEditions Diamond Edition]]'' BluRay Discs and high definition digital copies came out exactly 60 years after the theatrical premiere. Disney drew a surprisingly small amount of attention to this fact in the advertising, not even writing "60th Anniversary Edition" on the BluRay cover.

* OldShame: NBC's 2014 adaptation seems to have become this for the network. Its ratings seemed drastically lower than those of their telecast of ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic'' the previous year, and it also became SnarkBait for the Internet community. Not even NBC could resist taking potshots at ''Peter Pan'' - ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' released [[http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/peter-pan-live/2832820 a parody]] a mere two nights after its premiere, which showed less mercy to the cast, production design, and choreography than the previous year's ''[=TSoM=]'' parody did for its subject. This reception prompted producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron to call adapting ''Peter Pan'' "[[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/wiz-producers-how-oscars-turned-845893 a mistake]]", figuring they realized too late that it seemed too outdated and/or AdaptationOverdosed. In December 2015, after NBC's more contemporary special of ''Theatre/TheWiz'' earned both higher ratings and more positive reviews than ''Peter Pan'', the network reran both ''The Wiz'' and ''The Sound of Music'' on two separate nights, but denied ''Peter Pan'' another airing. Chairman Bob Greenblatt admitted during his [[http://deadline.com/2016/01/hairspray-live-musical-nbc-1201682009/ announcement]] of a ''Theatre/{{Hairspray}}'' telecast that maybe ''Peter Pan'' ran too long compared to its predecessor and successor, but added, “I don’t mean that disparagingly”.

* DevelopmentHell: This was intended to be Disney's second theatrical film, but Walt didn't get the rights to it until 1939, when J.M. Barrie bequeathed the ones to his play to him. Then, he began developing the story and character designs, and intended it to be his fourth film. However, the onset of WorldWarII put the brakes on this -- along with several other films -- and it became Disney's fourteenth entry in 1953. This also resulted in the movie appearing as an EarlyBirdCameo along with ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' as a storybook on the shelf at the very beginning of ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}''.

* Tinker Bell is a major mascot for Disney, being in the ''Series/WaltDisneyPresents'' intros and the ''WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyMasterpieceCollection'' logo and the Disney DVD logo; ironically, the ''Masterpiece Collection'' animation was rotoscoped from a ''Walt Disney Presents'' opening (from when it bore the title, ''Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color'').

* ActingForTwo:
** Traditionally in the stage play and musical, and in the 2003 movie, Captain Hook and Mr. Darling are played by the same actor; in this case, it's Hans Conried. In the Disney version, they still bear a resemblance, and are voiced by the same actor. Interestingly, J. M. Barrie wanted Captain Hook to be played by ''Mrs.'' Darling's actress, [[ExecutiveMeddling but was evidently overruled.]]
** JMB didn't really intend a message from the dual roles; it was mostly to get more use out of a single (rather good) actor, who'd otherwise be sitting around for half the performance.
*** Actually, it may be intended to make a point as Hook is, in the book, described as being somewhat feminine, as Barrie envisions all pirates to be. It is something to do with Hook's intuitiveness at times.
*** From the first book, chapter eight: "In his dark nature there was a touch of the feminine, as in all the great pirates, and it sometimes gave him intuitions."
* ActorAllusion: Wendy shares a voice actress with Alice from ''[[Disney/AliceInWonderland Alice in Wonderland]]'', and several scenes play this up. Her general personality resembles Alice in the first place, and her rambling to Peter when she first meets him seems to call back to how much of ''Alice in Wonderland'' is taken up of Alice talking to herself.

Additionally Kathryn Beaumont was the live action model for both Wendy and Alice.

** Early drafts had Nana going with the children to Neverland.
** Disney considered having only Wendy and Michael go to Neverland, with John staying behind. This would have been to emphasise John as trying to be very much like his father. There are some traces of this - with John being more pompous than the other two - but this trait was dropped.
