If you got gift cards for Christmas and are looking for some post-holiday shopping season sales, this list has you covered with deals from Amazon’s New Year’s 2023 sale, including items with coupons, buy one get one half-off savings, and more. There are great Disney books, toys, household goods, and accessories, and more on this buying guide.
We’ve combed Amazon for deals, and what we’ve found is below. Note that some of these sales started shortly before Christmas, and we already highlighted them in our ‘very merry’ deal roundup. Many have been added since, and those are towards the top. We receive a small commission from 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.
If you’re looking for a broader range of products or limited-time Lightning Deals, we’d recommend checking out Amazon’s New Year’s Deals Days page. That features everything from blenders to vacuums to weighted blankets, and bunch of things that have nothing to do with Disney or travel. On with our list of the best NYE 2023 deals on Amazon—we’ll add more items to this list as we find more, or receive additional reader recommendations!
Thomas Kinkade 2023 Disney Calendar – Probably shouldn’t be surprising that a New Year’s sale has calendars on sale, as most people have purchased these for 2023 by now. Regardless, you can save 50% on this if you’re willing to get it late. (For us at least, there’s same day delivery–so you won’t even miss a single day of 2023!)
Baby Yoda Hallmark Ornament – Also unsurprising that annual Christmas ornaments are discounted for the New Year. This Hallmark design is 58% off.
Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghosts Hallmark Ornament – This one is only 30% off, but it’s such a cool ornament of an iconic scene that I’ve gotta include it. (Although I’m guessing all of the WDW/DL fans and Hallmark collectors already bought this gem at full price before Christmas!)
Snowman Mickey Mouse by Jim Shore – Lots of fans collect these Jim Shore figures, and this is a good deal at 44% off. I’m not wild about the pattern on his stomach, but to each their own on that.
Lenox Minnie’s Dream Wedding Ornament – We have had this Christmas ornament since 2010. Good deal at 44% off for those who got married this year, or are planning to next! (This version is not dated, FWIW.)
Funko Pop! Disney Advent Calendar – At almost half off, this is a good buy now to save until December 2023.
Stemless Seasonal Mickey Mouse Glasses – This high quality glassware is 58% off as part of the New Year’s sale. Some might say that it’s “wintery enough” to keep using throughout the next month or two. Not that we’d do that ourselves or anything!
Mirabel Singing Doll – No clue why this is 52% off (the lowest price it’s ever been on Amazon), perhaps they ordered too many or it didn’t sell well. Regardless, cool for those who want a singing Mirabel doll that plays the accordion.
Raya Dragon Flower Light Up Necklace – Neat necklace for kids, or adults looking to make a statement while walking around Walt Disney World. 54% off.
Unofficial Disney Parks Cookbook – Despite its tremendous popularity, I’ve always overlooked this cookbook in favor of the official ones. However, it’s so cheap as part of the New Year’s 2023 sale that I’m finally going to see what all of the fuss is about. A perfect 5/5 score on 13,000 reviews gives me high expectations.
Unofficial EPCOT Cookbook – Same idea here, but with the newer EPCOT edition. 48% off seems like a good deal on a hardcover cookbook!
Buy 2, Save 50% on 1 – There are a variety of special offers as part of the Very Merry sale, one of which is 50% off one item when you buy two eligible products. This includes a variety of Disney and non-Disney items–mostly puzzles and board games.
To take advantage of this, simply add 2 items from the products page to your cart using the ‘Add to Cart’ button. When you’re done shopping, select ‘Go to Cart.’ The offer will automatically be applied at checkout, if eligible.
Here are some specific products that are eligible for this buy 2, get one 50% off promo:
Encanto House of Charms Game – I’ve never even heard of this board game, but it’s part of the promo and everyone seems to love Encanto, so…
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. (Part of the $10 off $50 promo.)
Villainous Disney Strategy Board Game – This game by Ravensburger has received rave reviews and won the prestigious ‘Game of the Year’ Award at the TOTY Awards. It’s made our past deal lists, but at 50% off with this promo, I think this is the cheapest we’ve ever seen it.
Villainous Star Wars Edition – Same idea, but with Star Wars.
Villainous Marvel Edition – Ditto.
Space Mountain Game: All Systems Go – A new release by Ravensburger last month (on Walt Disney World’s 51st Anniversary!), this board game features players racing rockets to see who can complete their missions and visit all 5 Starports first. Avoid cosmic events and keep an eye on your fuel levels to leave opponents in your space dust!
Haunted Mansion: Call of The Spirits Board Game – This is an excellent strategic game that’s easy enough for kids but also deep enough for adults. Our one warning here is that the instructions are a bit confusing, but there are several superior YouTube videos that break it down in easy-to-understand terms.
Thomas Kinkade The Disney Collection 4 in 1 Multipack Puzzles — 4 puzzles in 1 package, with 500 pieces per puzzle.
Thomas Kinkade 4 in 1 Puzzle – This is a different one from the Disney Dreams Collection, featuring Donald & Daisy Duck, 101 Dalmatians, Mickey, Minnie, & Pluto, & The Little Mermaid.
LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Trouble on Tatooine Set – Kids can recreate scenes from Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 2 and play out their own speeder-bike-riding, missile-shooting battle stories with this Trouble on Tatooine building toy. Includes the Mandalorian and Tusken Raider LEGO minifigures, each with weapons for role-play battles, plus a LEGO figure of Baby Yoda (Grogu). There are lots of other LEGO sets for 18% to 25% off, including the Madrigal House from Encanto LEGO playset.
Baby Yoda Stuffed Character – Similar idea here. Not exactly a plush, this 11-inch Grogu toy has a soft body, plus a sturdy base filled with beans, perfect for cuddling or display as a collectible. Winner of a Toy of the Year Award.
Searching for Disney limits it not to all Disney products, but for those listed as having Disney as a brand–which leaves off a lot of items. Those results are mostly socks, slippers, pajamas, and backpacks. And honestly, those deals aren’t even that great. (At least what we saw wasn’t.) However, there are some other items with coupons that are good deals…
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.
Delicious Disney: Walt Disney World – This is a cookbook, with recipes for iconic dishes like the Grey Stuff, Tonga Toast, Kungaloosh, Ronto Wrap, Hollywood Brown Derby Grapefruit Cake, and Le Cellier Steakhouse Cheese Soup. However, it’s also so much more. You’ll also find rare restaurant concept art, history (my favorite is “Walt Loved Fried Chicken”), and old menu scans. (We don’t recommend this nearly as highly as the WDW 50th or Disneyland Taschen books, but it’s still solid!)
Walt Disney’s Disneyland — This is 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. Not as cheap as it was for the holiday shopping season sales, so consider waiting if you don’t “need” it ASAP.
Here are other recommended titles, most of which also have their own discounts:
While we definitely aren’t the target audience for the stories, we absolutely adore the art and style–they’re great for anyone with kids, theme park fans, or anyone who was a kid and has fond memories of Little Golden Book. Give them a browse if you don’t believe us!
Anker Slimline Phone Charger 10,000mAh External Battery Pack – 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, fastest quick-charging capabilities, and is updated with USB-C compatibility. This is the battery pack we bring to the parks now—perfect for the two of us.
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.
Packing Cube Sets (Multiple Sizes) – Another staple of our packing list, we are fans of packing cubes and these are a solid deal. There are a LOT of packing cubes on sale–not only does this have a 15% off coupon, but you can take another 8% off if you purchase 3 eligible sets.
Princess Activity Tote – Also pretty far from my area of expertise, but this playset looks fun and is another cheap gift option. 50% off.
