Friday's Lightning Deals are (almost) all about Disney!

Tomorrow's Amazon Lightning Deals are (almost) all about our pals from the Disney Channel, from Mickey to Sofia, from Frozen to Toy Story, and from Jake to Doc (the few exceptions are listed at the bottom of this post). There are Disney board games, costumes, event precious amulets -- 'cause we all know that every kid needs an amulet.

If this past Wednesday's events are any indication -- when the various Melissa and Doug toys sold out within seconds of the deals' starting times -- you'll want to plan ahead and be ready to click "Add to Cart" the moment the item you want goes on sale.

As of right now (9:30 p.m. on Thursday), the Disney deals are just indicating a general start time at the top of the hour each hour (e.g., 6:00, 7:00, 8:00), but, as we discovered on the Melissa and Doug day, Amazon may end up indicating that the first half hour of each deal is just for Prime members. If you're interested, you can decide to do a Free 30 Day Trial of Prime to get the benefit of that extra time (as well as all the other stuff Prime offers).

Finally, we also discovered on the Melissa and Doug day that it's best to hover on the main Lightning Deals page and then click quickly once the sale begins (rather than going to the individual item page and refreshing until the sale price appears). So instead of giving links tonight, I'm just going to give times -- when you're ready to shop, just go to the main Lightning Deals page, sort by category to "Toys and Games", and you'll be all ready to go!

Last thing: Several people noticed on Wednesday that the Lightning Deals weren't applying properly on mobile devices. If you really, really want something, try to be by a computer.
