Amazon is back with another Prime Day, and this one includes more great deals on Disney items, travel accessories, and much more! Perfect for those with upcoming trips to Walt Disney World, or for fans who want to save money on cool Disney stuff. We’ve already bought several “essentials” (okay, mostly books and gadgets, but those are essential, right?!)
In case you missed the first one, Prime Day is basically Black Friday for people who are too lazy to put on pants and leave the house. Amazon, youget me. 😉 Joking aside, we ended up buying more last year during Prime Day (including our Alexa Echo and Philips Hue–totally unrelated to the subject matter of this blog, but we absolutely love both) than we did during the post-Thanksgiving sales. For us, Prime Day was better than Cyber Monday.
In this post, I’ve aggregated a bunch of the best deals that are likely to be of interest to Disney fans and tourists. Some of these are Disney-specific items, whereas others are non-Disney things. The former are just plain fun, and the latter are practical items that would be useful for Walt Disney World or Disneyland vacations. If you want a broader selection of the current deals, check out Amazon’s Spotlight Prime Day Deals page for the biggest savings and most popular deals…
As with any of these promotional event sales, some of the “special offers” are great and some are…not so special. We’ve combed through the various deals and compared them to prices elsewhere and we’re only listing the deals here that are actually good…
Maps of the Disney Parks– With discount code PRIMEBOOKS18 (which is good for $5 off any book purchase over $20), this works out to being over 60% off. Great deal on a great book!
Walt Disney’s Disneyland– Not a Prime Day deal per se, but there is an extra coupon for this TASCHEN pre-order, which is my most anticipated book of 2018. Anyone who has owned or even held a TASCHEN book knows why this is going to be something special, and this deal can’t be beat!
Eat Like Walt: The Wonderful World of Disney Food – This is not a cookbook, nor is it 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!
Compact Waterproof Beach Blanket/Ground Cover– This might seem like an odd recommendation, but these beach blankets make great parade mats, and are rarely discounted. Not every color is on sale for Prime Day, so make sure to choose one that is!
Mogix Phone Charger 10400mAh External Battery Pack – Great for charging multiple phones while at Walt Disney World, which will be imperative if you’re using My Disney Experience for FastPass+, or using social media at all. Make sure to use the coupon (on the product page, below the price) to save more!
Anker 5-Port USB Travel Charger – Some newly-refurbished Disney hotel rooms are starting to get better about having enough charging ports, but we still always travel with one of these to charge our phones, cameras, watches, etc. at night.
Memory Foam Neck Pillow Airplane Travel Kit – This kit also includes a velour cover, sleep mask, and earplugs. Sarah swears by all of these things for longer flights (although she now uses an inflatable pillow to save space), and this Prime Day Lightning Deal is a great discount!
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!
