The $26 must-buy Amazon Prime deal if you're going to Disney
These prices were accurate as of the Amazon Prime Day sale on Oct. 12 and will vary after that time.
It's Amazon Prime Day (yes, again) — and that's actually great news if you have a big theme park trip on the horizon.
TPG has a roundup of some of the best travel-related deals in the Prime Early Access sale that you should check out, but there's one seemingly small and easy-to-overlook item I wanted to call out if you are planning a trip to Disney World or Disneyland: FuelRods.
In the parks, FuelRods are $30 each, but right now you can get a pack of two for about $26 via the Amazon Prime sale. Obviously paying $13 for each, instead of $30 each in the park, is some savings worth noting.

You need these in the parks because you'll probably be taking lots of pictures, checking ride wait times, ordering food and booking your Genie+ Lightning Lanes, which can drain your phone's battery in a hurry. There are tons of power banks on the market you can buy and bring, but while at Disney, an easy solution that doesn't require much prep or extra weight to carry around is to use FuelRods.
You can exchange these pocket-size battery boosters at machines all around the parks. Also, once you buy a FuelRod, you can exchange it for free at Disney as many times as you wish. Just drop your drained one in the machine and out pops a fully charged one that's ready to go.
I'm a heavy phone user at the parks and I usually get a few hours out of each FuelRod, so a pack of two is basically perfect for my family to buy and toss in our park bag.

While it's free to exchange your FuelRods at the machines located throughout the Disney parks, it'll cost you $3 at Universal. That makes them slightly less attractive to use there. However, it's still a better deal to go ahead and buy the FuelRods for less in advance than pay $30 in the parks if you think you'll be using them to power up.
So as you're browsing some of the top Prime Day deals, don't miss this small but mighty way to save on a must-have item for your next Disney trip.
