Unused HUD Portraits
There are HUD portraits for Kairi, Lea, Mickey Mouse, Riku, Ventus and Xion, but since none of them are playable outside of specific battle sequences, these go used in the original game.
Riku's was eventually used in the Re Mind DLC.
Scala ad Caelum Cable Car
Never seen outside of pre-rendered cutscenes.
Despite only being seen in cutscenes, the desk, walls and bookshelves have collision!
The roads around the Galaxy Toys Parking Lot have collision, but the textures are obviously placeholders, and was likely scrapped early on in development.
Most of the collisions close to the building almost work perfectly, though the Pizza Planet vehicle has rudimentary collision.
Though the entrance to the Monsters Inc. Factory is only used in the first cutscene, there is collision for it, and the entire parking lot!
Scala Ad Caelum
There is a lot of unused collision to be found in the world, despite only a small portion of it being used for the final battle!
Many of the Eastern parts seem to be an early version of the Market Area which would later be in Re Mind.
The outer parts of the circular battlefield where the final stand-off takes place has collision, but the inner rooms don't.
Disney Castle Photo Frames
Despite only being used in a cutscene, there are hidden picture frames of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.
Le Grand Bistrot
Galaxy Toys Trolley Carts
Though they can't be seen, they have actual textures!
Toy Box Road Textures
The placeholder Toy Box road texture appears at the end of the road, but can't be seen in normal gameplay.
Radiant Garden Castle
Despite only being used in cutscenes, there's detail for the Radiant Garden castle near the entrance.
Old Mansion Drawings
Even though the Old Mansion is inaccessible, some drawings can be seen in the room where Namine resides.
Scala ad Caelum Benches
Several benches are hidden near the top of the castle, reused from the bottom part of the area.
Mysterious Tower Outside
A world which functions almost perfectly. It can be seen in prerelease footage.
Scala Ad Caelum Chess Room
Again, another room that is never seen outside of prerendered cutscenes. There's a lot that's unseen!
ex_28, ex_30, ex_32, ex_36 and ex_40 contain areas that are of a basic white platform in a black background. Judging from the level order, these were intended to be Battlegates intended for Monstropolis, Arendelle, The Caribbean, and the Keyblade Graveyard.
Loading the map contains an odd message in Japanese that translates to "You are not the true Keyblade wielder". In Re Mind, this map was replaced with the Shibuya map.
Unused Music Part
The song that plays during The New Seven Hearts cutscene contains one minute worth of unused audio that isn't normally heard.
Scrapped Cutscene Music?
Some of the cutscenes in the game have no audio at all, but looking at the filenames there were songs that were supposed to play during cutscenes;
BGM_kg702b_cut was apparently supposed to play during the cutscene where Donald uses Zettaflare on Terra-Xehanort, while the other, BGM_kg702b_2_cut was supposed to play after Riku says "You don't believe that. Both audio files are sadly completely silent.
Unused Re Mind Content
The most infamous unexplorable area is the entirety of Shibuya, where a LOT of stuff is hidden from view during the battle with Yozora on top of the 106 building. As mentioned in an interview, the development team intended it to be explorable, but they saved it for "the next big game".
