* Carlos's fear of dogs may not just be due to his mother's indoctrination: if there ''are'' any dogs on the Isle, they're probably nasty ones descended from the likes of Sikes's Dobermans from ''Disney/OliverAndCompany''.

* They take a moment in the film to reveal that Belle and the Beast married when he was 28. The reason that they might take the time to establish that fact is, due to combining to lines in [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast their movie]] ("cursed until his 21st birthday" and "ten years"), fans on this very site have worried that the enchantress cursed an eleven year old. By establishing that Belle and Beast got together when he was 28 instead of 21, it removes that issue and changes it to him being cursed at 18.

* Performing "Be Our Guest" at Family Day makes a lot of sense, seeing as the story of Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast would be a part of the cultural history in Auradon, like how The Beatles are a part of our world's cultural history.

* Ben is a handsome, kind-hearted, brainy, slightly eccentric young man, with a rather arrogant and vain initial love interest, who later is partial ostracized by his friends for pursuing a relationship with an ill-tempered individual, who later becomes a better person, [[LoveRedeems because of his love]]. Guess Belle can relate, having had a similar [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast adventure]] as her son.

* Jay explains one thing the Isle does better than Auradon is that they don’t care about gender if your skills are good, in order to argue why Lonnie should be allowed to join the fencing team whose rules state can only be made of men. What makes this statement even better is that the villain of [[Disney/{{Mulan}} the movie]] of Lonnie’s origin is a good example of such. When Mulan revealed to Shan Yu that she was the one that caused the avalanche killing nearly his whole army, unlike even her own fellow male soldiers who considered her actions dishonorable and no longer credible after finding out she was a woman, Shan Yu only saw her as “the soldier from the mountains” who “took away his victory” and a powerful threat standing in his way.

* Resurrecting villains just to send them into exile might seem to be cruel and serve no purpose until we remember that the dead won't necessarily stay dead. Jafar himself became an example of this in [[WesternAnimation/{{Hercules}} "Hercules and the Arabian Night"]].

** Although considering all magical artefacts are locked up in the museum, the heroes would have a hard time stopping the villains. After all, if Audrey could stop Fairy Godmother, what's to stop Madam Mim from doing the same thing. Not to mention if Yzma recreates the potion that make Hercules mortal. Plus most villains' strong point was patience, who's to say they won't secretly plan the ultimate heist to take over Auradon?

** Nothing whatsoever. Which puts them right back in the position of their parents' generation, of having to deal with active, functional potential villains ... albeit villains whose identities and powers are, at least, ''a known quantity'', and who've been soundly beaten before. No longer pure happily-ever-after, but at least the worst baddies won't all be queens, viziers and warlords on top of being nasty.

** [[spoiler: Dr. Facilier is likely to toe the line too, for Celia's sake, and Evie's mom won't be as dangerous with Evie in possession of the magic mirror. Jafar's power is likewise limited due to his staff being locked up in the (hopefully ''finally'' better-guarded!) museum. And whether the barrier stands or falls, Maleficent is still a lizard. So aside from Ursula, whom Uma can potentially face down with a little help from her friends, and Yzma, whose transformation-magic is ''exactly'' the sort of thing Fairy Godmother can counteract, there aren't so many villains whose reawakened magic poses a major threat.]]

* Although we never saw Doug's family, it's likely that at least some of them were hesitant to see him taking up with Evie, the daughter of the Seven Dwarfs' old enemy. But after the events of this film, even his Uncle Grumpy won't have any grounds to complain about Doug dating the Evil Queen's daughter: [[spoiler: if TrueLovesKiss was good enough to validate Snow White's relationship with Prince Florian, it's certainly grounds to validate Doug's and Evie's love for one another, too!]]

* [[spoiler: With the barrier now down, it's likely the Isle also no longer has restrictions on magic anymore (let alone it being restricted again for Isle residents now in Auradon). But while some of the villains we see like Jafar, Evil queen, Dr. Facilier, Lady Tremaine, Mr. Smee, and even Hades seemed to have at least mellowed out a bit since the events of their original stories took place, it's not likely all the Villains have to that extent. We know Disney villains are also good at holding grudges, and the ones that did use magic before have been deprived of it for quite some time...]]

* Why are Evie's cookies usually made of not-digestible or even poisonous materials? Well, since we know [[GreenEyedMonster how her mother reacted when there was a person more beautiful than herself]] it's more than possible that the Evil Queen realized that her daughter would become beautiful with time and given that her parenting mostly centers around[[ItsAllAboutMe Evie continuing to live out the same goals as her]], knowing that kids like cookies, taught her how to make them in the hopes that Evie could use them on others.
