The Key of Guidance cutscene sees Sora and Alice meet up in KH1’s Lotus Forest room in Re:CoM, instead of the dynamically created Lotus Forest one from CoM. This reuse of the room is absolute foolishness, not only because it looks silly (did we even change locations at all?) but is even sillier considering the Mad Hatter and March Hare’s place could have been used for a completely fresh room! In the GBA version, they talk in a generic forest that doesn’t come from KH1 at all, probably in attempt to emulate the film?
The party takes a breather to discuss whether or not they should continue to run like chickens with their heads cut off. Just then, the Cheshire Cat appears, and proclaims that the Queen “won’t forget you till she remembers! […] You should do something, but you don’t have to do anything.” When prompted, he gives a Wonderland nonsense speech (the kind that’s full of oddly phrased truths) about the nature of memory, saying that if you can’t remember something, it never happened, and vice versa. “Try too hard to remember, and your memory might lie to you.”
