    They are a rather dangerous souvenir... they don't provide any UV protection and can actually cause more harm to you eyes than no glasses at all if you wear them outside.

    And yes they are nasty, but then so are the 3D glasses you get when you go to a movie theater. While you might think they are new because they are in a plastic bag they are just just re-bagged... so yourself and everyone else a favor when you go to a 3D movie and throw the glasses in the trash so they can't recycle them, lord knows you already paid for them because they added a surcharge on the price of the ticket to pay them so don't be gross and let them recycle them.

    I'm very disappointed in some MCers with their views on stealing.

    I just wonder how they would feel, if someone stole from them?

    Hmm I would have thought that returning the glasses would be self explanatory, yknow with the whole "Return your glasses" bins, and the fact that they belong to Disney.

    But I guess you have to word everything out these days.
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    Why don't you just order all 50,000 and set up a cart on Harbor across the street from Disneyland. You can market it as selling sanitary glasses so people don't have to use the ones in the park that are used over and over again.

    Re: So I guess you're not allowed to take the Toy Story Mania glasses?

    I guess I'm confused, it seems obvious to me that these glasses are every bit a part of the ride as any other component. e.g. the average person wouldn't take them away seeing that other guest were discarding them into the receptacles at the exits. Unless they just felt entitled to them. And I don't understand how someone could feel entitled to them since it's obvious you're not purchasing them for the ride, rather you are "borrowing" them.

    When we borrow, we return. Unless we are stealing.

    Pretty simple. What if "EVERYONE" took a pair?

    I have no problem with the way the security person took the glasses. I've heard someone say a CM took glasses from them, or a friend in a similar way. I'm sure they see this all the time. It is the simplest way to get them back.

    In most movie theaters, you are paying for the glasses, and they give you a sealed, 'fresh' pair. Why? Because unlike Disney, they don't do 10s of thousands of viewers every day and have no need or desire to treat and reuse the glasses and instead sell disposible pairs.

    Disney on the other hand reuses glasses. It's not a difficult distinction and to understand why one is different than the other.

    Do you really need someone telling you how to do every little thing or signs telling you something?

    Do you just pick up food at the store and start eating it.. because.. there is no sign there saying 'do not eat me'?

    Up next.. we will need signs in the hallway that say 'turn NOW' because people will say no one told them that they should turn when the hallway changes direction.

    Morals - have any? Just because someone can do something - doesn't make it RIGHT. Attitudes like this are why we can't have nice things anymore.

I'm assuming that new glasses cost more as why would they invest all of the time and money into the washers- but I wonder how much cheaper?
    Well.. first off.. look at this way. Assume the attraction does 1,000 guests an hour. The park is open roughly 12hrs a day on average. That's 12,000 glasses a day. 84,000 a week, or 4.36 MILLION pairs a year. Even if the glasses only cost them a penny... new glasses would cost them 43,600 dollars a year. Never mind the amount of waste, storage, shipping, etc that would generate.

    It's not a responsible attitude to take to generate that much waste for something that can be washed and recycled.

    The theaters were i live have alarms on the theater doors so if you leave the theater with a pair the alarm goes off! The extra cost for 3D movies is the studio cost not the theaters for glasses as the theater makes no money off of tickets only concessions which explains the higher cost of those products.
    BGood! It's not just my motto its my name!

    If you honestly think people don't watch you in the stores for stealing. You're dead wrong.

    There is a reason why there are bins at the exit of ALL 3D attractions.

    I have a pair that i've taken. They are a cheap plastic pair of glasses, who cares. Me and my wife see how much stuff we can get every time we're at the parks, granted we always ask CM's. Like i have a menu from cafe Orleans and framed it. There's lots of cool unique souvenirs you can get if you just ask.

    Re: So I guess you're not allowed to take the Toy Story Mania glasses?

    The information about park policy regarding taking the glasses has been fairly well answered and documented at this point.

    This thread is now closed due to off-topic and increasingly argumentative discussions of other aspects regarding theft from the resort and personal attacking type posts.
