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

    So a few weeks ago I took my first ride on Toy Story Mania and there was no signage like Star Tours telling you that you have to return them, so I took one assuming that was ok. I also wore them repeatedly the same day to go on the ride and the cast member giving out the glasses in line didn't care when I said I already had them. 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.

    What's the point in keeping them?

    Umm, no you're not supposed to take them. That's why there are big barrels at the exit of all 3D attractions that say "Return glasses here".

    Well I think they're just like a cool random souvenir and it's kind of gross to keep wearing ones used by hundreds of random strangers (I always wipe my Star Tours one with one of those Purell wipes) so I just cleaned one and was planning on using it all day.

    Why would every other ride/attraction that uses some form of glasses require you to return them and not this ride?

    Yeah, that kind of seems like a given...

    Yeah returning 3D glasses is required on every ride/ movie theater in the country. Why would Disney give away free glasses when they can reuse them?

    I know that on all the other 3D rides they have them but when I went on a few weeks ago I swear there was no sign. I was actually LOOKING around to see if I missed it somewhere and I couldn't find it, so I assumed it was ok. The cast members didn't care either which kind of reinforced it.

    All the glasses are cleaned in a giant sanitizing machine after every use. That's where they go after you throw them in the aforementioned giant barrel.

    Understandable, but those glasses are cleaned after they are used. That's where they go after they are picked up from the return bins.

    If you think the glasses are gross, what about every railing, ride lap bar, and every other surface that is touched constantly throughout the entire day by thousands of guests?

    I don't like to think about it . I didn't know that the glasses were cleaned after use, so I just had a big sigh of relief. And I'll be sure to return the glasses next time I'm on TSM. Thanks for the info!

    There are indeed signs after you exit TSMM and climb the stairs to put away your glasses. It might not be in plain English stating, "Please return your glasses here" but there are bins with pictograms letting you know to place your glasses in the appropriate bin. There are actually multiple instances when you are exiting to discard said glasses. I don't know how you can miss them to be honest.
    "Up" is a relative concept. It has no intrinsic value.

    Apparently I was too excited to get back on again to notice them! Thanks for the info though I'll be sure to return them next time.

    If you witnessed the machines these babies go through, you won't even have to worry about what's been on them.
