The only reason I can see for enabling this in production is for Data Guard. These are , obviously, my personal opinions. I don't see many scenarios (if any) where I would flash an entire production database back as that would mean data loss.
To turn it off, you need to shutdown, startup mount, alter database disable flashback database, alter database open.
