    They are basically your standard industrial dish washer. When anything comes out of these dish washers, they are incredibly hot.

    Just to note, I have never seen the ones at Disney, but almost all 3D glasses in the industry are cleaned by using this method.

    They're basically long machines which wash and dry the glasses via conveyor belt. It can get pretty hot and sticky if you're in a room with one operating.

    but wow, that security guard was so mean, it's not like the guard was going to return it all the way back from downtown disney to tsmm cus, that's a lot of work.
    oh im pretty sure that Disney Knows for a fact that people take them home and such. I don't see the big deal here, it's not like it's worth lots of $. but yeah, that security was over reacting.

    I wouldn't say it was too harsh. The OP was walking off with Disney Property and they have every right to take it back if they so choose. It doesn't seem like it was taken with any kind of force, and most people normally aren't so willing to just hand the glasses over if they failed to adhere to the signs while exiting the attraction.

    Bottom line, when people don't return glasses that's an extra cost that Disney has to endure which drives up other prices in the park. Please, return your glasses after the attraction, they can't really do anything for you outside of the attraction anyway.
    "Up" is a relative concept. It has no intrinsic value.

    It sounds as if the guard was pretty objective, honestly. The glasses are Disney's property and they do have a right to ask for them to be returned. The guard was doing the proper customer service thing, actually: I've seen other customer service reps do similar things. Instead of saying "don't take those!" they're saying "I know you meant to return those but must have forgotten you had them; I'll help you by taking them for you!"

    Having said that: are Disney's 3D glasses special or would any 3D glasses work in Star Tours/TSMM? If someone were really paranoid about germs, and the outside glasses worked, I suppose someone could buy a pair ahead of time and bring them to the park.

    Tough to be a Bug, Muppet 3D and TSMM are the same (I believe) Star Tours are not(again, I believe). I've often wanted to use the pair I get at Disney 3D movies because they are MUCH more comfortable to wear, but to date I haven't had the chance to see if they work.
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".

    I also thought that 3d glasses could be bad for your eyesight if you wear them for long periods of time as if they were just another pair of glasses.

    Gonzo will show you how it is possible to trip while wearing your glasses.

    They are VERY bad for your eyes in sunlight.
    They are basically polarized and tinted. The tinting effect dilates your pupils allowing more UV rays into your eyes and onto the retina since there is no UV blocking effect whatsoever. At certain angles, the polarized light will allow more UV rays into your eyes (of course it may block other rays from another direction but not enough to balance it out).

    With that said, anyone wearing them as sunglasses during the day will probably not suffer long term effects. Why? B/c the glasses will give you a monster headache within minutes and the person wearing them will most likely put 2&2 together and realize what is going on and take them off. It is similar to the first stages of snow blindness (what I have been told. Dunno for sure since I haven't experienced either effect).

As I was strolling through Downtown Disney today I had them propped up on my hat and a security guard walked by me in the opposite direction and swiped them from my hat and coldly said "I'll be returning these for you" without even stopping. Are you not supposed to take them, because I didn't see a sign or cast member telling you to give them back.
    there are signs at the exit that say Please Return Glasses


    This is my signature, there are many like it but this one is mine, without me my signature is useless, without my signature i am useless!

    The 3D glasses in movie theaters (such as Disney digital 3D or "RealD") are circular polarized. These will not work in the current Disney 3D theme park attractions.

    The glasses at Muppetvision, Tough to be a Bug, and Captian EO are linear polarized, at 90 degree angles to each other. These will not work in a movie theater, and won't work on Star Tours either.

    Star Tours uses dichroic glasses, that work in a similar fashion to the old red/blue glasses. They are much more expensive than the polarizing kind.

    I find it hard to believe that you thought you could keep them.
