2019 Cyber Week Deals for Disney & Travel

Cyber Monday is over, but the deals aren’t coming to an end! Retailers have extended, with Cyber Week discounts continuing. Amazon is doing a “12 Days of Deals,” and there are great Disney and travel options for everyone on your Christmas list! We round up the best discounts on toys, books, and travel gadgets that’ll improve your trips to Walt Disney World and beyond. (Updated December 3, 2019.)

With many of the best posts on this blog being about saving money at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, etc., it should come as no surprise that we’re frugal and love a good deal. Naturally, we’ve already made many purchases for Cyber Week 2019 (albeit none yet that are explicitly “Disney”) and we’re sharing some of our top finds with you in this post!

Some of these discounts are on Disney books & toys, whereas other things are practical items and gadgets that will come in handy while traveling–or potentially even at home. We’ll update this post throughout Cyber Monday Week, adding and removing things as deals go live or sell-out…

As always, Amazon.com is dominating Cyber Monday Week. I don’t know if they coined the term “Cyber Monday,” but Amazon pretty much defines it and accounts for the vast majority of the best deals today. Check out Amazon’s Cyber Week/12 Days of Deals page for the biggest savings and most popular deals.

Note that many of Amazon’s top offers (especially on that page) come via Lightning Deals, which are available for a limited amount of time or until everything is claimed. One of our top strategies for Cyber Monday is to simply refresh that page and see what new deals appear. They rotate with surprising regularity!

Naturally, the go-to place for Disney merchandise is…ShopDisney. On top of normal savings, you can save another 30% off purchases of $150 or more (with 15-25% savings on lower totals) by using code CYBER in ShopDisney’s Cyber Monday (Extended!) Sale. That’s on top of discounts on parks merchandise, toys, holiday decor, etc.

Honestly, 30% off full-priced items is not a huge savings. What we’d recommend doing (and what we’ve done ourselves) is browsing the Sale Section to save as much as possible–lots of good items from the parks and beyond. That’s the best way to sweeten the deal, so to speak.

Many 2019 Cyber Week deals are also on our 2019 Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Disney Fans or our Ultimate Walt Disney World Packing List, so double win! Even without special offers, those are great ways to get your holiday shopping started–or create your own Christmas list.

With those main options out of the way, let’s turn to our top finds, followed by items organized by category…

Top Picks

Thomas Kinkade Disney Princess Coloring Poster Book – Another $5 off eligible title is this large-format Kinkade coloring book featuring classic Disney stories such as AladdinBeauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid, PocahontasTangled, and more!

Thomas Kinkade 2020 Disney Calendar – Kinkade Studios returns with another dreamy Disney landscape calendar, with some fantastic scenes. Includes Winnie the Pooh, Tangled, Mickey & Minnie, 101 Dalmatians, and more.

Thomas Kinkade The Disney Collection 4 in 1 Multipack Puzzles – 4 puzzles in 1 package, with 500 pieces per puzzle! This is a new set with Cinderella, Lion King, Mickey & Minnie Mouse, and The Little Mermaid all in dreamy landscape scenery! 

Frozen 2 Monopoly – Half off this edition of the Monopoly board game that celebrates Anna and Elsa’s journeys through Arendelle, with royal decree cards, family chest cards, and snowflake spaces/tokens that offer an icy new twist on Monopoly.

Junior Encyclopedia of Animated Characters – The popular “autograph book substitute” recommended in our Ultimate Packing List. It’s a clever autograph book, and it’ll make a great keepsake for kids!

5-Minute Princess Stories – At half off this popular Disney book, you’re getting a really good deal on a stocking stuffer.

Mickey Waffle Maker – One of our tried & true favorite gifts. This under $15 gift is a great deal!

Minnie Mouse Watch – This is under $20, which is one great deal (65% off!) for an eye-catching Minnie Mouse watch.

Travel Eye Mask – Sarah uses this for flights and hotel rooms to block out all light for better sleep. She’s a huge fan. (Be sure to apply the coupon!)

Aukey Slimline Phone Charger 20000mAh External Battery – A super slim charger that’s perfect for keeping multiple phones fully charged while at Walt Disney World, which will be imperative if you’re using My Disney Experience for FastPass+, or using social media. (Be sure to apply the coupon!)

Aukey Dual-Output 10000mAh Portable Charger – Same idea, but half the capacity. Can still charge most modern phones ~2-3 times.  

Anker Ultra-Compact 5000mAh External Battery – Half the capacity as the battery above for roughly the same price, but also more compact. 

Belkin Travel Power Strip – Need to charge several devices overnight while traveling? This is what we use–it’s not as necessary for WDW in newer rooms (we primarily use it for other destinations now), but the 3 outlets and 2 USB ports come in handy. Great deal, too!

Disney Books

The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company – Bob Iger’s memoir, which is surprisingly candid and transparent. 

Disney Princess Cookbook – From Rapunzel’s Frying Pan Eggs to Ariel’s Sea Turtle Cupcakes, this beautiful cookbook is filled with delicious recipes inspired by the Princesses’ many adventures.

Disney Ideas Book – The perfect rainy-day gift for kids who love Disney and enjoy crafting. More than 100 arts and crafts, party games, puzzles, paper craft, and many other fun & practical activities.

Poster Art of the Disney Parks – There’s a good chance you already have this, but it’s worth mentioning given that it’s nearly 50% off. If you or a Disney fan in your life doesn’t have it, it’s a must-buy. (Read our full review here.)

Ink & Paint: Women of Walt Disney’s Animation – This book is a beautiful, informative book that’s shockingly large, making it perfect for coffee table display as well as in-depth reading. At nearly half-off, it’s a great deal, too.

Be Our Guest: Perfecting the Art of Customer Service – Great for leadership training! Disney Institute reveals more of the business behind the magic of quality service.

DISNEY TOYS & GAMES

Buy 3, Get 1 Free – This is a new deal as of December 3, 2019 and includes over 99 Disney toys! Simply add 3 eligible toys to your shopping cart, and the cheapest one will be free!

Disney Frozen 2 Elsa Musical Doll  Elsa sings “Into the Unknown” and says 14 film-inspired phrases, and also has a dress that lights up in a gorgeous pattern inspired by a dramatic film moment. 

Sphero BB9e App-Enabled Droid – The Sphero Star Wars droids are awesome, and this is the best deal of the bunch. If you’ve never played with a Sphero before, you’re in for a real treat.

Slinky Dog in Retro Packaging – Good for kids, but arguably even better for adults given the retro-styled packaging, which reminds me instantly of the Slinky Dog Dash queue!

Lionel Disney Mickey Mouse Express Train Set – If you’d prefer a more traditional train, this awesome Lionel holiday train set with remote is a great alternative to the LEGO one below. At 47% off, it’s a great deal!

Mickey Mouse “Hot Dog Dance” Plush – I don’t know what this dance is…and I’m not sure that I want to know…but this is a good deal if your kids are into this sort of thing.

Disney Travel Gadgets & Accessories

Lightweight Travel Backpack – Another good deal (for some colors and sizes), this super lightweight bag is perfect for a day bag in the parks, and will easily pack into your luggage.

Packing Cubes – Another brand we’ve never tried, but once again, the price is right.

TravelPro Crew11 Suitcase – We mentioned this in the Black Friday post, but this 63% off suitcase deserves more attention. TravelPro is the only brand of suitcase I use (see my Luggage Tips & Recommendations post). It’s the most popular brand with flight attendants, and for good reason–mine still looks brand new after years of heavy use.

TRAVEL DEALS

Get Away Today Walt Disney World & Disneyland Ticket Deals – Through December 3, 2019, you can save up to $98 on Walt Disney World tickets (via promo code BLACKFRIDAYFL). Alternatively, you can buy score Adults at Kids’ Prices on Disneyland tickets. The Disneyland deal can also be stacked with hotel bundles to save even more. (And you’re also locking in ticket prices now before the inevitable February 2020 price increase.)

We cover both deals along with other recommendations in our Walt Disney World Money-Saving Ticket Tips and Discount Disneyland Tickets posts.

Discount Disney Gift Cards – We shared this last week, but will post it again here as this is a great way to save on literally every aspect of your Walt Disney World or Disneyland vacation.

Okay, that’s it for right now. There are a bunch of other great deals…and far more even “meh” offers. We recommend opening the Amazon Cyber Week & 12 Days of Deals homepage, and browsing the ‘Deals of the Day’ and the ‘Lightning Deals’ for yourself a bit. There are several great deals in both categories, but that doesn’t pertain to Disney, so it’s not listed here. Also, if you want to help out with the process, please share any Disney-relevant (either actual Disney products or ones that are useful when going to the parks) deals you’ve found in the comments!
