Amazon has a Prime Day promo offering 3 books and other media for the price of 2. To take advantage, simply add 3 items from the books on this page to your Shopping Basket via the “Add to Basket” button. The offer will be automatically applied to your total at checkout. Here are our recommended titles from this offer:
The Ride of a Lifetime: Lessons Learned from 15 Years as CEO of the Walt Disney Company – This is past Disney CEO Bob Iger’s memoir, and it’s shockingly candid and compelling. Iger is clearly a smart and interesting guy, but all of his interviews are played fairly close to the vest and feel meticulously scripted. This is a sharp and fascinating departure from that. Highly recommended!
Travels with Figment On the Road in Search of Disney Dreams – The last title by Imagineering Legend Marty Sklar, published posthumously. I still have yet to start this, but every other book by Marty Sklar has been excellent. Plus, it has Figment right in the title!
One Day at Disney – I don’t like this book, but the price is right at 51% off and part of the 3 for 2 deal. YMMV.
Maps of the Disney Parks – The next two books are staples of our gift-giving guides, and that’s in part because they are both titles that look really nice, making them eye-catching gifts. We covered this in our Top 10 Disney Park Books list, but it bears mentioning again.
Poster Art of the Disney Parks – If you have to choose between the ‘Maps’ book above or the ‘Poster Art’ book, this is the better one, hands down. It features posters from around the world, including a ton you’ve never seen before. This book was curated by Walt Disney Imagineering, and it shows–the design and artwork is fantastic.
The Muppet Christmas Carol: The Illustrated Holiday Classic – If you’ve followed this blog around Christmas-time, you know we are huge fans of Muppet Christmas Carol. I’ve seen it more than any other film (the next closest is Terminator 2, for those keeping score at home).
Eat Like Walt: The Wonderful World of Disney Food – This is neither a cookbook nor a phony attempt at sharing foods Walt Disney might’ve liked. Rather, it’s an interesting look at the history of the parks, along with rare photos. Truly an excellent book–be sure to clip the coupon below the price to save even more!
Hocus Pocus Blu-Ray – Only one of us recommends this, and it’s not me. Nevertheless, a great deal on a campy and (arguably) fun Halloween movie that has somehow become a classic.
Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas Blu-Ray – Now we’re talking. A real Halloween/Christmas classic!
Thomas Kinkade Disney Coloring Books – Mentioning this because there are a lot of Kinkade-Disney fans. Unfortunately, none of the puzzles or calendars made the 3 for 2 deal. We love those, but are not huge fans of the coloring books. (Isn’t the whole point of Kinkade the color and light?!) Still a great deal.
The following items are not part of the 3 for 2 deal, but have great savings of their own…
Walt Disney’s Disneyland – We ordered this a couple of Prime Days ago, and as you can read in our full book review, it’s one of my favorite Disney books of all-time. Anyone who has owned or even held a TASCHEN book knows why this is something special, and this deal can’t be beat! (Be sure to clip the coupon for another ~$13 off.)
Marc Davis in His Own Words: Imagineering the Disney Theme Parks – This behemoth is by Pixar director Pete Docter and Imagineer Christopher Merritt, and it’s a passion project about one of the true Walt-era Imagineering heavyweights who is behind a bunch of iconic attractions, including Country Bear Jamboree. (The coupon makes this 75% off!)
Thomas Kinkade The Disney Collection 4 in 1 Multipack Puzzles – 4 puzzles in 1 package, with 500 pieces per puzzle! There are a bunch of regular Kinkade puzzles on sale for Prime Day, but this is not one of them. It’s just a “regular” deal, which still seems pretty good.
Disney Storybook Collection – A large, 300+ page hardcover book retelling several classic Disney stories complete with 250 pieces of artwork from the Disney Archives.
Kingdom Hearts All-In-One Package – I’ve never been able to get into this game–just doesn’t do anything for me–but this is an undeniably good price (40% off!) and entry point into the Kingdom Hearts universe.
Disney Eye Found It Card Game– A card game version of the standard board game that we normally recommend–and an even better deal (40% off).
Cards Against Disney – NOT APPROPRIATE FOR KIDS. This looks like a knock-off of Cards Against Humanity, a game we don’t really like to begin with. Nevertheless, this looks intriguing and is on sale…it’s just a question of whether it’s any good. (The reviews suggest it is, but we’re still hesitant.)
Okay, that’s it for right now. There are a bunch of other great deals that are totally unrelated to Disney on the Amazon Prime Day homepage. We recommend browsing for yourself a bit, and checking back often, as new deals are regularly appearing–and disappearing. Just be mindful of the fact that some of these offers are time-sensitive, so you don’t want to spend too much time procrastinating and end up losing out!
Also, check back here throughout the deal, as I’ll share more Lightning Deals as they become available if they’re any good. Oh, and if you find anything that you think would be useful for other Disney fans, please share in the comments below!
