It’s almost that wonderful time of year again! Amazon Prime Day is coming up, and you never know what types of deals will be on offer. The Amazon Prime Day Disney deals are a great way to get the gear you need for your trip, at a lower cost (updated June 21, 2021).
Welcome to The Disney Journey’s Prime Day 2021 hub! Primarily, this post goes through all the types of deals to look for that will make your Disney trip a little bit easier.
On the big day itself, I try to go through and add some deals that jump out at me as being good for a Disney trip, or at the very least, direct you to the pages that contain deals in the different categories.
Sometimes the Prime Day deals are time sensitive or sell out, so you need to be ready to jump on them.
Any times I mention as launch times throughout this post are based on Eastern Standard Time, so adjust accordingly for your time zone.

Amazon Prime Day Dates and Information
This year, Prime Day is happening earlier than ever. Prime Day will run on June 21 & 22, 2021. During that time frame, there will be a flurry of deals posted by Amazon, some awesome, and some not so much.
Some people refer to Prime Day as Amazon’s annual yard sale, and they aren’t too far off. However, if you are patient, there are some awesome deals to be had.
Prime Day is when I got my beloved Anker Portable Charger which now goes on every vacation. They also always seem to have packing cubes and luggage offers.
Amazon Prime Membership
If you want to take advantage of Prime Day, and you should, the only requirement is to have an Amazon Prime membership. An Amazon Prime membership isn’t exactly cheap, but if you order from Amazon a lot, it’s definitely worth it.
Just the free 2-day shipping with no purchase minimum is clutch.
There is a bit of a way around this if you don’t think an Amazon Prime membership is in your budget right now. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial of Amazon Prime, conveniently timed for Prime Day.
This way you can take advantage of Prime Day, decide whether you like the membership, and cancel if it’s not for you.
If you plan to sign up for the free trial, make sure you remember to do so before Prime Day starts!
How Do Prime Day Disney Deals Save Money on My Disney Vacation?
Simply stated, one of the biggest ways you can save money on your trip is to buy as much as possible for the trip before you arrive.
I think we all know that Disney World jacks up prices on anything you buy in the park. By planning ahead and bringing necessary items with you, you save money in the long run.
In addition to reducing souvenir costs, it’s about buying the gear you need to make your trip easier, at a lower price. Clearly, a lot of this depends on what sort of gear you already own.
Definitely don’t buy something you don’t think you actually need or already have. A Disney trip is already expensive enough. But, if there are things you need, Prime Day is a great time to grab them.
Prime Day Disney Tips
- Sometimes the deal is only on certain colors, so pay attention to price changes when you click on different colors
- Keep a running list of times items you are interested in go live. Some sell out very quickly, others just run out of the deal time allotment.
- If you are looking for Disney themed Prime Day items, go to the Amazon search bar, select Prime Day as your department, and simply type Disney.
- You can earn an extra 1% cash back reward if you use your Amazon Prime credit card to pay (bringing the total up to 6% cashback)
- Alexa provides early access to some Prime Day deals
- You can create customized notifications for deals you want to track
- If you are interested in any Amazon device, they often have huge deals for Prime Day, often starting before the official Prime Day dates
Amazon Prime Day Deals 2021
Make sure you keep an eye out on Amazon’s Prime Day page. You never know what great deals will pop up. I literally have a list of items I’ll be looking for…
If you’ve wanted any sort of Amazon device, like Kindles, TVs, Echos, or Fire Sticks, Prime Day is the time to do it. The prices are typically VERY low!
If you do plan to get a Kindle for the kids you should definitely consider Amazon Kids+ (formerly Amazon FreeTime Unlimited) as well. That gives kids unlimited access to games, shows, books and more.
There’s a monthly charge depending on exactly what you choose, but you can sign up for Amazon Kids+ through this link and get 30 days free.
Since I’m updating this page ahead of deals going live, any links don’t yet reflect the sales. But sit tight, the deals should start flowing soon.
Amazon Devices Good for Travel
Kindle Fire 10
The Kindle Fire HD 10 is a great low priced tablet. This tablet is perfect for travelers of all ages to help keep them entertained.
We have used Kindles for years and love them. They aren’t without their glitches, but for the price, Kindles are the best bargains in the tablet market.
For Prime Day, the Kindle Fire HD 10 is 47% off, making it well under $100!
Kindle Fire HD 10 Kids Pro Tablet
The Kindle Fire HD 10 Kids Pro Tablet gives you everything you need for hours of kid approved entertainment while traveling.
In the bundle you get a Kindle Fire 10, a very durable cover, and one year of Amazon Kids+ for free.
This Kindle is a real life saver on road trips and plane rides. Because keeping the kids entertained while traveling is key…
Nab this for 40% off on Prime Day.
This is the largest size kids Kindle bundle, you can also get this in the Kids Kindle Fire 8 bundle.
Did you know that an Echo Dot will also work at your hotel room? As long as you have electricity and WiFi, your Dot can travel with you.
Sometimes it’s nice to have some of the conveniences of home at a hotel room.
If you’ve ever contemplated getting an Echo Dot, now is the time to get one while it’s 50% off.
Travel Gear and Accessories for Disney
Every year, Prime Day has a pretty big selection of travel gear and accessories. If you need new luggage, packing cubes, day bags for the parks, etc., Prime Day is an awesome opportunity to catch the sales.
The specific items on sale changes every year, so it’s hard to predict exactly which products will show up. However, there are ALWAYS luggage sets, packing cubes, and day bags on the list.
Last year, they even had the Disney American Tourister 2-piece set on sale for 47% off. I’m REALLY hoping that one shows up again.
Head on over to the section of the Amazon Prime Day luggage and travel page. Remember, the listed offers will change constantly, so make sure you keep going back to look for new offers.
Luggage Deals to Look for on Amazon Prime Day
Here’s my list of the types of items to look for that make good Prime Day Disney deals for luggage and travel:
- Luggage sets
- Packing cubes – seriously these make packing so much more organized, especially if you plan to do a split stay at Disney
- Backpacks – look for water resistant and packability
- Sling Backpacks – this is my preferred style of day bag for those long Disney park days. I’ve used this bag many times at Disney and it’s awesome. I actually bought it during Prime Day a couple years ago.
- Waist Bags/Fanny Packs – Fanny packs are back, baby! My 12 year old self is secretly excited about this. But seriously, waist bags are a great hands free option for those who want to travel lighter
Luggage and Travel Gear Deals I Like So Far
Here are some items I’ve come across so far which really jump out at me.
In general there are luggage sets on sale for up to 50% off. There are a few different brands available, and this section will likely change each day, so make sure you check it today and tomorrow.
TravelPro MaxLite Carry-On
One of the suitcases offered today is actually my #1 recommended suitcase brand! The TravelPro MaxLite series is phenomenal and what I personally use.
Unfortunately, I only see the carry-on size right now. Perhaps the larger suitcases will get added, but there’s no guarantee.
The TravelPro MaxLite is available in many different colors and two different sizes, 22″ and 20″ carry-on. I like that the colors aren’t necessarily typical so the suitcases stand out from the crowd a little more.
Samsonite Omni Hardside Set
If hard side luggage is your preference, Samsonite Omni offers one for $100 on Prime Day. This two piece set includes a 20″ carry on and a 24″ checked size bag.
Both suitcases feature spinner wheels. The Prime Day price is available in only two colors: Caribbean Blue and Red.
Gadgets for Disney World
There are some gadgets that make a Disney trip easier, and there are others which are completely necessary. Primarily what you want to look for are gadgets related to charging devices.
Some of these might be for your hotel room, while others are necessary to keep in your Disney day bag. And seriously, if you get nothing else on Prime Day, look for good deals on portable USB chargers.
In fact, I have an entire article on just why portable USB chargers are essential for a Disney vacation. But the short version is this: your phone battery drains faster than you can say “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” while at Disney.
You simply use your phone a lot (mobile ordering, checking wait times, taking photos, using your MagicMobile pass, etc.). And if your phone dies, you suddenly don’t have access to a lot of the tools that make your day easier.
The Prime Day cell phone and accessories page is where you’ll find various types of USB chargers.
Disney Gadget Deals to Look For on Amazon Prime Day
This list is fairly short, but very important.
- Portable USB Charger – seriously, completely essential
- USB Charging Stations/Power Strip – to my dismay, many of the Disney resort rooms simply don’t have enough outlets to charge everything. And even when they do, sometimes they don’t work. I didn’t bring a charging station on my last trip and I regretted it when we didn’t have enough outlets to charge 4 people’s devices. Here’s a USB wall charger I recommend.
- Extra Charging Cords – sometimes you need extra ones, sometimes you don’t
Disney Gadget Deals I Like So Far
Here’s what I’ve seen so far today:
Anker Power Bank 10000 mAh
Anker is pretty much top brand in portable USB chargers. And Prime Day is a great day to find some awesome deals on them. This Anker Power Bank 10000 mAh portable charger is 43% off, making the price under $20. This is a great deal.
Anker PowerCore Fusion 5000
Here we have an option for your hotel room to make sure you have plenty of plugs to charge all of your devices each night. Some resorts have a ridiculous shortage in usable plugs, so this Anker PowerCore Fusion 5000 is a great item to add to your Disney packing list.
This deal drops the price down by 31%.
Anker PowerCore 5000 Portable USB Charger (goes live at 6:34pm EST)
I own an older version of the Anker PowerCore 5000 and it’s great. Very small so it fits well in all manner of pockets and bags. I have used this at Disney World so many times so I can vouch for it as a great option.
Set an alert with Amazon if you’re interested in this item.
Comfy Shoes for Disney
In the past few years I haven’t been blown away by the shoe offerings on Prime Day. But you just never know what will show up. So just in case, I’m putting shoes on the list.
What you want to look for are shoes that are good for a lot of walking. Think 10+ miles a day for any Disney park day. A blister or sore feet can ruin your trip so fast it’s not even funny.
Look through my guide on the best shoes for Disney World. That will give you an idea of what I’m talking about and specific shoes I recommend. Then look at the deals that show up on Prime Day to see if anything works.
Here are some quick links to access the Prime Day shoe deals:
Baby and Kid Gear for Travel
These deals are definitely not as plentiful, it seems, but it doesn’t hurt to look. In this category, you are looking for things that make travel with kids and babies a little bit easier.
Here is the Amazon Prime Day baby items page to get you started in your hunt for baby travel deals.
I’m going to admit, most of what’s on this page is not applicable to Disney or travel at all. However, if you weed through it, you might find some awesome deals. Or just some other baby gear you needed at a great price!
Look for anything that might make road trips more comfortable for everyone. And entertained children definitely make parents more comfortable. Last year there were travel trays for road trips, LCD writing tablets for drawing without markers and paper.
Another thing to look at are strollers if you plan on buying one for Disney. There are definitely some distinct features you want to look for in a stroller for Disney.
Last year, one of the strollers I specifically recommend for Disney was a great deal during Prime Day.
Also, make sure you look for any stroller accessories to make your trip easier. Extra storage is always a good idea. This has the added bonus of reducing the amount you need to carry in backpacks.
In addition to stroller organizers, look for deals on stroller fans to keep your little ones cool.
Baby Travel Gear I Like So Far
Here are some items which have jumped out at me.
Baby Jogger City Mini GT2 Stroller
If you’ve had your eye on a perfect stroller for Disney World, the Baby Jogger City Mini is the hands down winner. I’ve personally used this stroller at Disney and it’s amazing.
The fact that it’s on sale for Prime Day is awesome. The price itself looks like the normal price on the page, but Prime members get 40% off in their cart! 40% off is a huge savings on this amazing stroller.
Universal Stroller Rain Cover
You simply never know when it’s going to rain in Florida. And sometimes it rains horizontally. If you plan to bring a stroller, a rain cover can be a major life saver.
This universal stroller rain cover is a good option to give your little ones a little extra protection in case you get stuck in a rainstorm.
Outfits and Costumes for Park Days (or for Fun)
Kids in costume are a very common occurrence at Disney World. It adds a little bit of extra fun for the kids, and the pictures in front of the castle are extra special.
Sometimes, you can even find themed t-shirts, which are also another big thing at Disney World. Last year, this shirt went on sale on Prime Day. Isn’t this perfect for a day at Hollywood Studios?
Any Other Miscellaneous Amazon Prime Day Disney Deals
I decided to add this catchall category in case I found anything else truly useful or interesting and I just didn’t know where else to put it.
So I stumbled across these PopSockets which are Disney themed. If you like to just Disney-fy your things in general, this is a cute option. Or if you simply want a Disney themed PopSocket just for your trip, here you go.
They also have Star Wars themed PopSockets.
In general, I’m a huge fan of Prime Day, glorified yard sale and all. Over the past few years I’ve managed to grab a few things at a great price which really came in handy.
In terms of my Disney trips, my favorite Prime Day items have been my trusty portable USB charger, my sling bag, and a multitude of packing cubes. I might have a bit of a problem when it comes to accumulating packing cubes, actually…
