Disney was true to its source material. In the Grimm's Brothers story, the clothes don't vanish, they are just taken away by the animals helping Cinderella. In Perrault's version, Cinderella in turn becomes so enchanted by him she loses track of time and leaves only at the final stroke of midnight, losing one of her glass slippers on the steps of the palace ...

Based on a rough analogy from UK tradition, Charming would be the Prince's first name, not his last/family name. Simple ref: Prince Charles.

With her wand, Lady Tremaine was able to reverse time and manipulate people memory, so why then the 12 o'clock limitation? So I feel like it was all Fairy Godmother's plan. And I was ...

It probably looked more majestic to have the carriage pulled by 4 horses instead of one and of course only one driver was required. There were 4 mice and one horse. Ergo...

Slippers are supposed to be relatively easy to slip on and off, even if they are a close fit. Also, a glass slipper wouldn't be breathable, and dancing in a warm ballroom would result in fairly sweaty feet, which would facilitate it slipping off.
