Best Black Friday 2023 Disney Deals!

Thanksgiving is over and Black Friday 2023 has officially arrived, with great deals on toys, books, collectibles, travel accessories, gadgets, tech, and more! This post rounds up the best discounts on items for your Walt Disney World vacations, or that will make great gifts for the Disney fans on your Christmas gift-giving list.

Although it’s finally the real Black Friday (November 24, 2023), retailers started the sale season over a month ago. We’ve been sharing deals, including in our Early Black Friday Deal Roundup, and have already been inundated with emails from retailers like Target, Walmart, and Amazon–plus our favorite deal aggregators–about some super sales. Of course, not all deals are created equal–some “special” offers are simply marketing–but many discounts are actually quite good this year!

That’s where this post comes into play–separating the cream of the crop from the marketing fluff to bring you the best deals related to Disney and travel! In this post, I’ve aggregated the best deals–some of which are Disney-specific, whereas others are non-Disney items. This includes a lot of fun items for collectors, parents, people doing gift shopping, plus things that will be useful for Walt Disney World or Disneyland vacations…

If you want a broader selection of the current deals, check out Amazon’s Early Black Friday Sale page for the biggest savings and most popular deals. Even then, the options can be overwhelming, as there are literally tens of thousands of items on sale. (If you’re not already a member, click here for a FREE 30-day Amazon Prime trial membership. Also a great way to watch Thursday Night and Black Friday Football!)

Additionally, you might want to check out the following early Black Friday sales at other retailers:

Below, we’ve combed through the various deals on Amazon’s Early Black Friday Sale page and are sharing only those we deem good. We receive a small commission from Amazon for your purchases, so buying through these links helps support the site. However, neither the price you pay nor our recommendations (or lack thereof) are impacted by that.

Many things on sale for Black Friday are also on our 2023 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.

On with the list of the Best Amazon Black Friday Sale deals for 2023…

Disney Home Goods

Lenox Disney100 Christmas Set – We have a few Disney Christmas ornaments by Lenox that we absolutely adore. They aren’t cheap, but the quality makes them worth it. This new Disney100 display looks really nice, and is on sale.

Thomas Kinkade 2024 Disney Calendar – You’ve seen Kinkade’s work if you’ve ever been in an Art of Disney store. It’s the dreamy, improbably-lit paintings that you want to step inside. With their mix of artistry and impressionism, Kinkade’s Disney designs are mesmerizing, and this calendar is a great way to look at them all year long…without spending $1,000+ on a painting!

JoyJolt Disney Christmas Glasses – There are a bunch of different options here for ~55% off, but the ‘Joy Oh Joy’ set is my favorite. They have a classy, mid-century look that matches our new tree skirt perfectly. High quality, with a nice weighted base, too.

Ceaco Thomas Kinkade Disney 100th Anniversary Collage Puzzle – A great puzzle company combined with fan-favorite artist Thomas Kinkade in a collage of art. Really something for everyone here–and a great family activity for this holiday season!

Mickey Mouse Iconic Coffee Sign – YES! IT’S BACK!!! This was a huge hit last year, and thankfully, the fine folks who make Mickey Mouse pro-coffee, anti-murder signs are offering another deal on this little gem. Put this up in your office at work, great conversation piece.

Mickey Mouse Neon Sign – Perfect for our readers thinking of hosting a Disney EDM party or, I guess, using this as a night light (as the manufacturer suggests).

Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker – We’ve recommended this for the last few years, and have actually bought it multiple times for ourselves (got lost in a move) and given it as gifts to family and friends. (It helps that it’s really cheap!) Pocket the money you’d otherwise spend on those Chef Mickey’s or Crystal Palace breakfast reservations.

Light-Up Lightsaber Chopsticks – Complete gamechanger for sushi and all your other eating needs. Can’t imagine ever using normal non-lightup silverware again, like some non-Jedi peasant.

Disney 100 Mickey Mouse 3D Espresso Cup or Coffee Mug – Not your ordinary coffee mugs. Peek inside and discover Mickey’s ears shaping your coffee in optical 3D and a rainbow iridescent sheen that catches the morning light for the Disney100 celebration.

Note that there are two sizes here–the cheaper one is smaller and for espresso, whereas the larger size is for coffee or whatever type of larger drink. Only the espresso size indicates that it’s on sale, but the coffee cup is actually discounted by more according to the MSRP on the manufacturer’s website.

Baby Yoda Coffee Mug – This hand-painted mug featuring Grogu from the Mandalorian is absolutely adorable.

Chip Mug – With an indented chip on the rim, metallic gold trims, and the sweet face of Chip from Beauty and the Beast – this coffee mug is sure to delight any fan of the beloved Disney movie.

Disney Clothing

Cheap Mouse Ear Headbands – There are a bunch of different third party Minnie Mouse ear headbands on sale for Black Friday for ~$8 each or ~$13 for 2-packs.

Christmas Mickey Mouse Santa Red Graphic T-Shirt — This is cheap and looks far nicer than you’d expect for a shirt that costs for this amount. I wore this last year during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party until it got cold enough to put on a sweater. (If you like a loose fit, you might want to size up. Kinda wish I had.)

Save 55% on Crocs – This is one of the best deals on Crocs we’ve seen in a while, but it’s on a style that is (IMO) even uglier than normal. Great for wearing around the house or garden, or Disney, I guess, if you think this looks good. Other styles are also on sale, albeit for lesser savings.

Mickey Mouse Watch – I like the all-grey style and whimsical yet classic Mickey Mouse face. A playful design that’s classy and not too eye-catching.

Disney Christmas PJs — Nothing says “Christmas” like sitting by the fire and wearing pajamas, or at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. We love the idea of this, but it’s a big gamble that Florida weather will cooperate–even in November and December! Regardless, a very good deal.

Disney Pajama Sleepwear Sets – A variety of sleepwear sets from Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Frozen, etc. Savings vary by size.

Powerline Shirt – Buy this in bulk to send a powerful message to Disney that you want to see Powerline take over Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster when the ride is reimagined. At 44% off, you can’t afford not to! (Maybe?)

Loungefly Star Wars X-Wing Helmet Mini-Backpack – This Amazon-exclusive Star Wars Loungefly bag is definitely more in keeping with the unique silhouettes for which the backpack company is known. Would be perfect for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and is a great deal at $25 (~44% off).

There are actually a lot of Disney Loungefly bags on sale for Black Friday, but few are this cheap.

Disney Hoodies – A bunch of Amazon-exclusive hooded sweatshirts on sale. Very basic, arguably boring designs.

Disney Travel Accessories

Anker Portable Charger with Built-in Lightning Connector 5,000mAh – Even before Genie+, we recommended bringing a backup battery pack to charge your phone while using My Disney Experience or social media at Walt Disney World.

This one is new-to-us and has good capacity for one device plus quick-charging capabilities. The biggest highlight, as is probably apparent by the photo above is that it’s equipped with a built-in Lightning connector, making it easy to charge your Apple devices without having to carry an extra cable. That is huge for me, as I hate carrying cords. I just bought this!

Anker PowerPort Cube Strip with 3 Outlets and 3 USB Ports – Disney has refurbished many of its rooms, adding USB ports in the process, so this isn’t really necessary for those. It is for many off-site and older hotel rooms, though. Plus, this has fast-charging to get devices recharged quicker and USB-C.

Anker Magnetic Power Bank 10,000mAh Wireless Charger – Slightly more expensive than the option below, but the key difference is that this is wireless. A gamechanger for travel!!!

Anker Slimline Phone Charger 10,000mAh Battery (USB-C) — Even before Genie+, we recommended bringing a backup battery pack to charge your phone while using My Disney Experience or social media at Walt Disney World. This one has great capacity and the fastest quick-charging capabilities. This is the battery pack we bring to the parks now—perfect for the two of us.

Anker 335 PowerCore 20K Portable Charger – Double the capacity of the above charger and with USB-C fast-charging as the default. The downside is that it’s larger, but the value for money is great. (For only ~$3 more, THIS is the version we highly recommend. It’s the better of the two deals!) 

Brita Insulated Water Bottle — Florida water tastes awful straight from the tap, so it’s key to get a bottle with a filter. We love our Brita water bottles, but we have not tried the insulated metal version yet. This bottle is durable, BPA-free, dishwasher safe, and uses a 2-stage activated carbon filter reduces odor, chlorine and leaves zero aftertaste. Be sure to clip the coupon!

Repel Travel Umbrella – This is umbrella is so good that we’ve bought 3 of them this year. Technically, that’s because I’ve lost two of them, but that’s a minor detail.

Gonex Compression Packing Cubes – They key here is that these are compression packing cubes, which normally cost more and will save you even more space when packing. If you need the suitcase space, we recommend this set over the one below. (Note that there are a variety of Gonex compression cube sets on sale–our personal favorite is this 4 piece set, but the 6 piece one arguably offers better bang for buck.)

Packing Cubes 4-Piece Sets – Another staple of our packing list, we are fans of packing cubes and these are a solid deal. (With that said, there are a LOT of packing cubes on sale, so you might want to browse the results for “packing cubes” on the Amazon Early Black Friday page and see which sizes/colors/etc. best suit you.)

16-Pack Roll-Up Compression Travel Bags for Packing – We have never used these as we prefer something more durable since we travel frequently, but reviews are positive. It sounds like they save even more space, but for that you give up a bit of reusability. Totally a matter of personal preference. 

Sukeen Cooling Towel 4-Pack – The cooling system on these towels uses moisture from the towel to draw the sweat away from your skin to keep you cool. We still prefer the Frogg Toggs Chilly Pad (this color is currently 33% off!), but some Walt Disney World fans prefer these. At nearly half-off, they’re definitely worth giving a try!

Personal Neck Fan – This is shockingly effective. It’s like that refreshing feeling you get when walking past an open doorway of an air-conditioned building. It’s not perfect, but it’s a really fantastic idea, and is a breath of fresh air during hot and humid days in Florida (which is ~10 months of the year).

Mickey Mouse Handheld Fan 2-Pack (USB Charge) – This looks adorable and is on sale for Black Friday. Personally, I’m not sure this is the most practical handheld fan on sale, but it’s definitely the cutest.

Foldable Handheld Fan – This is the fan that I’d get. Not as cute, but smaller–and space matters in your Disney backpack! Also on sale for Black Friday, and has amazing reviews.

American Tourister Minnie Mouse Suitcase – I’m not a fan of this, but I’m also not the target audience. Objectively great deal at 55% off.

American Tourister Disney Kids’ Bags – Cute bags for kids at great prices–some designs are up to 46% off, others aren’t on sale at all.

Gonex Packable Backpack — Another excellent innovation from the fine folks at Gonex…a brand I’ve literally never heard of outside the ‘packable’ space. This takes up minimal room in your suitcase and more importantly is super lightweight. That minimizes the amount of back-sweat you’ll have to endure from the Florida heat and humidity. The blue one is cheapest, and it looks nicest (IMO).

Apple AirTags – We use these to “track” our car (good for rental cars that can get lost in the sea of the TTC), checked baggage and camera bag (good for peace of mind), and much more that isn’t relevant to travel (Yossarian the Cat tracking).

We just picked up a new set to put in our stroller, which came at the recommendation of several readers who previously mentioned that Cast Members relocate parked strollers, making them difficult to find. AirTags should offer a great solution to this problem–we’ll report back on our results as soon as Megatron makes her first visit to Disneyland!

Mickey Mouse Air Tag Cases – Store your AirTags in style!

Disney Toys

KidKraft Disney Princess Cinderella Castle (Over 4 Feet Tall!) – This made our previous early Black Friday list, but now it’s a Lightning Deal for over 50% off. Guess I’ll be getting this for future use (thanks to everyone who provided feedback on its setup before!).

Up to 49% Off ‘Construction’ Toys – Lots of LEGO and other building sets, including princesses, Pokemon, and totally non-Disney stuff. (I’m a sucker for the LEGO Christmas sets, a couple of which are on sale.)

Olaf as Genie Funko Pop – Very weird even by Funko standards, yet oddly endearing?

PlayStation 5 Console – Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 Bundle – This is a great deal on the updated PS5 slim along with one of the hottest and best new games for the holiday season. It’s also available at the same price with the “new” Call of Duty but, parents, don’t buy that.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Not to get too far afield, but this is technically Disney-adjacent since Universal is likely to build a Zelda ride at some point. Anyway, one of the 5 best video games of all-time, and great for kids to learn problem solving skills and critical thinking. (I’m not kidding!)

Super Mario Odyssey – I’m not going to pretend this game is educational, but it is awesome.

Disney Classic Games Collection – A chance to relive your own childhood…assuming you played these iconic games as a kid.

LEGO Disney and Pixar ‘Up’ House for Disney 100This 598-piece LEGO Disney toy set includes a partial house built with balloons, different rooms and functions, plus Carl Fredricksen and Russell LEGO minifigures, and a Dug LEGO dog figure for dog lovers. According to LEGO, the set is “made for unlimited adventures on land or floating through the clouds.”

LEGO Star Wars Tenoo Jedi Temple – This Star Wars toy features a ‘levitating’ rock function, a kitchen with a buildable blue milk carton, bunk beds with a hinged ladder, characters and a speeder bike. Cool stuff.

LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter Toy SetFeatures a LEGO brick-built version of Luke Skywalker’s iconic toy X-wing Fighter to recreate the legendary action-packed scenes from the Star Wars original trilogy movies.

LEGO Mickey & Friends Castle Defender – The first time I’ve ever seen this set, period, let alone on sale. I wish this type of crossover existed when I was a kid. Disney and dragons–what’s not to love?! 

LEGO Disney Princess Rapunzel – One of a few new LEGO sets that are on sale for the second day. Only 20% off, but LEGO deals can be tough to find. 

LEGO Buzz Lightyear Planetary Mission Playset – I think this looks like a knockoff version of the real Toy Story, but to each their own.

Lionel Disney Mickey Mouse Express Train – Join Mickey and Friends to spread Christmas spirit in this present filled Disney train set that makes a great gift for kids and train hobbyists–perfect for around the tree, and an excellent deal.

Alice’s Wonderland Bakery Chat & Glow Cheshire Cat Stuffed Animal – This is from the weird Disney Junior show with (IMO) creepy character CGI, but you can’t tell that from this Cheshire Cat plush.

Raya and The Last Dragon Sisu Dragon Doll – Good deal on this 26 inches long character plush from the movie.

Doorables Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Collection – You could get three of these sets and still be below the $30 threshold. A great way to start a creepy, children of the corn army…but make it Disney! (Not hating on anyone who likes these. We all have our own unique taste!)

Disney Doorables Pixar Fest Collection Peek – I would argue that there’s a reason these are ~60% off. 

Disney Doorables Snow White Collection – Oh great, they’re multiplying like Gremlins in a Florida storm.

Mattel Disney Princess Frozen Dolls – Note that there are a bunch of different options here, all for 45-50% off.

18 inch Disney Doll Clothes – Princess outfits for Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, Little Mermaid and Aurora. I guess this is American Girl doll height?

Disney Castle & Princess Sheet Set – The design here is tasteful and fun; it looks classy and whimsical. I actually really like this. Not for me, of course. I’ll be scoring one of the many dinosaur designs by the same brand, which are also on sale.

Mirabel Encanto Fashion Doll – A mini-me, of sorts, for the child dressed as Mirabel.

Disney Books (3 for Price of 2)

Amazon has a Black Friday promo offering one book FREE when you purchase 2 eligible titles. 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 and you’ll get one of the titles for free (so in other words, 3 for the price of 2 books. Here are our recommended titles from this offer:

People Behind the Disney Parks: Stories of Those Honored with a Window on Main Street, U.S.A. – This book should be a must-own, instant-buy for anyone who is a fan of the people who brought Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and the other parks to life. It features 280+ biographies of people with windows on Main Street, and behind-the-scenes info on the creation of the ‘opening acts’ of the castle parks.

Art of Coloring: Walt Disney World: 100 Images to Inspire Creativity from The Most Magical Place on Earth – This carefully curated collection of illustrations features memorable characters, favorite icons, and visual surprises at each page turn. It’s not just what you’d expect–there’s a lot of concept art, posters, and maps in a coloring book that skews very vintage.

Disney Who’s Who (Autograph Book Substitute) – Instead of having characters sign a blank page, have them sign this actual book about 150+ Disney characters. After the trip, it’ll be a treasured keepsake. Now that normal character meet & greets and dining experiences with hugs, autographs, five highs, and everything else are back at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, this is once again one of our top recommendations for families with small children. Get it as part of this 3 for 2 deal to save even more!

Delicious Disney Disneyland: Recipes & Stories from The Happiest Place on Earth – The past ‘Delicious Disney’ titles have pleasantly surprised, offering a nice mix of history and recipes with unique content (food!) that is incredibly significant to our sentimentality for the parks, but doesn’t typically garner coverage in coffee table or even souvenir books. This one is brand-new, and we don’t own it yet–but that’ll change soon thanks to this promo.

Delicious Disney: Walt Disney World – This came out for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, and we highly recommend it. So much more than a cookbook!

Disney Eats: More than 150 Recipes for Everyday Cooking and Inspired Fun – From healthy snacks like a Minnie Mouse-inspired crudité platter and savory dinners such as Mulan’s Blossom Stir-Fry to Disney-character-themed bento box lunches and easy-prep treats such as Frozen Banana Dalmatian Pops, author Joy Howard shows that the creative possibilities are endless. 

The Unofficial Disney Parks Cookbooks Box Set – Don’t let “unofficial” fool you. While not made by Disney, these are the definitive cookbooks from the parks and are fan-favorites. Get the whole collection here as part of the 3 for 2 deal!

Disney A to Z: The Official Encyclopedia — This is a re-release of the definitive Disney encyclopedia for Disney100, but it’s been updated with almost a decade’s worth of changes and additions. (It was a busy decade for Disney!) A great book to pick up as part of the 3 for 2 deal!

The Walt Disney Film Archives. The Animated Movies 1921—1968 – Great TASCHEN title, for an unbeatable price.

Poster Art of the Disney Parks, Second Edition – This new title is an expanded and updated edition of the beloved book that ranks highly in our library. The second edition renders the first obsolete, as the 85+ new posters and behind-the-scenes development info nearly doubles the book in length. It’s worth it for all of the awesome new posters made for EPCOT’s reimagining alone.

Maps of the Disney Parks — This is a staple of our gift-giving guides, and that’s in part because it looks really nice, making it an eye-catching gift. We covered this in our Top 10 Disney Park Books list, but it bears mentioning again.

The Story of Disney: 100 Years of Wonder – Great book, newly updated for Disney100. Excellent deal with or without the 3 for 2 promo!

Holiday Magic at the Disney Parks: Celebrations Around the World — This is an incredible deep dive into the holidays (mostly Christmas and Halloween, but also Easter and other seasonal events) with great photos, detailed information, and rich history. If you love the seasonal events, this is an absolute must-own.

The Art of Walt Disney: From Mickey Mouse to the Magic Kingdoms and Beyond – I want to be very clear: we have NOT bought this, and I wouldn’t recommend that you do so at the current price, even with the 3 for 2 deal. The only exception is if you have two other ~$100 books you want as part of the promo, in which case it might make sense. Otherwise, we’d still expect a (much) lower price for this in the coming months–or Black Friday 2024.

100 Disney Adventures of a Lifetime: Magical Experiences From Around the World – We’ve had a few of these National Geographic “100” books, and they are excellent at generating two things: hype and conversation. Page through one of these and you’ll immediately feel an insatiable sense of wanderlust. Put one of these on your coffee table before a gathering, and travel will become the topic of conversation.

More Disney Books

A Portrait of Walt Disney World: 50 Years of The Most Magical Place on Earth – Our favorite Walt Disney World coffee table book ever. In style, structure, and quality, this is unrivaled. Truly the best thing to come out of the 50th Anniversary celebration, this covers everything from development to the evolution of Walt Disney World, with tons of rare photos and concept art.

You can read our full review if you want, but the bottom line is that this is the best book about Walt Disney World. The $4.80 coupon brings this down to under $24, which is far and away the cheapest price I’ve seen for this book. Its retail price is $60, and it was selling for over $100 when it came out due to shortages. We just picked up two more copies, one of which will be a gift this holiday season and the other will be a “backup” for when this inevitably goes out of print and costs a fortune.

Walt Disney’s Disneyland — This is NOT part of the 3 for 2 deal, but bears mentioning as one of my favorite Disney books of all-time at a crazy-good price. Anyone who has owned or even held a TASCHEN book knows why this is something special. By clipping the coupon, you’re getting this for 50% off, which is good but actually not as good as last year. (However, there’s always the risk of this going out of print, so we’d recommend buying by Cyber Monday at the latest if you don’t already own this.)

Disney Games

Disney Chronology Game – I had never heard of this, but the premise sounds intriguing: “Test your Disney knowledge with this iconic game of time that celebrates key moments in Disney’s 100-year history!”

Funko Disney It’s a Small World Game – It’s the happiest cruise that ever sailed! And you’ll be truly happy when cruising through checkout saving a whopping 55% off this game!

5 Second Rule Disney Edition – I’m a big fan of high-energy games that are easy to pick up and play, and this fits the bill perfectly. 

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).

Haunted Mansion: Call of The Spirits Board Game – I’m a total sucker for cheesy and cheeky board games, as well as Walt Disney World board games. This is the perfect intersection of those interests. It’s a fairly strategic game that’s easy enough for kids but also deep enough for adults. 

Magical World of Disney Trivia (2,000 Questions) – This game is perfect for superfans to casual viewers questions covering a wide range of Disney and Pixar stories, and with easier questions for kids.

The Little Mermaid Monopoly – Take 34% off this version of Monopoly, which celebrates Ariel’s under the sea world. 

Funko Disney Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Game – Another ride-specific game from Funko, this one for Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary. It features a sculpted mountain peak and mine tray, and features dynamite and dinosaur discoveries…what’s not to love?!

Sorry! Board Game: Disney Villains Edition – This family game combines classic Sorry gameplay with a wickedly fun Disney Villains inspired board, Spell cards, and 16 Villain pawns.

Okay, that’s it for right now. There are a bunch of other great deals that are irrelevant to Disney and travel (but also don’t appeal to me) on the Amazon Black Friday Sale 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!

Be sure to check back here throughout the coming days, as I’ll share new discounts and more Lightning Deals as they become available. Oh, and if you find anything that you think would be useful for other Disney fans, please share in the comments below!
