You can find almost anything on Amazon. Amazon’s prices are sometimes significantly lower than other competitor’s prices. However, Amazon is not always the cheapest place to buy everything. Here is my list of what not to buy on Amazon for Disney.

I want to share with you what not to purchase on Amazon for you next Disney World vacation. The items that I am going to list below, you will be able to get them elsewhere cheaper like the Disney Store. The DisneyStore.com runs promotions often. You can save anywhere from 15%-40% on Disney merchandise and you can get free shipping on orders of $50 or more. I love to use the DisneyStore.com to purchase Disney items for my Disney vacations. Another option is to download the Shop Disney Parks app on your mobile device. You can shop for items that are sold in the parks. You should really check it out.
