    That's simple protection for Disney. You don't share something you put close to your eyes. If one person got pinkeye at the park from a pair of the glasses they'd get sued; making sure the glasses are disinfected and only used once is simply a good way to cover themselves.

    And as to the OP: I guess it's a matter of perspective. Unless someone specifically tells me that an item is mine to keep, I assume it has to be returned. Unless someone tells me it's okay to take an item, I don't take it. When I went to see a 3D movie at El Capitan a number of years ago, they did let us keep the glasses---but they made a point of telling us "these are yours to take home."
    now i feel like an idiot. haha thats cool though

    Theft is theft.

    In a world of complaints over rising ticket prices, there's always a bottom line somewhere. Stealing does nothing but raise that bottom line, without the addition of new services.

    The more you steal, the less you can expect from Disney in the future.

    It is not required at movie theatres. You pay for the glasses with the ticket up charge. Most people recycle them, but they are literally recycled, not reused (some theatres have started reusing them; its still not common practice).

    It's no joke. Disney and reputable theatre chains wash their 3D glasses between uses, both to promote patronage (given the high cost of 3D tickets and today's economy, grubby 3D specs can be a business killer) and to minimize their liability for infection claims -- especially now, with concerns about germy 3D glasses on the rise (see Good Housekeeping's "The Dirty Truth About 3D Glasses").

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?

    And honestly- I'm just curious on this. If it were to be broken down per day- I wonder what's the cost of new glasses vs taking care of the glasses that I assume only last so many washes?

    As for the movie 3D glasses- my kids have always kept them. I asked once (due to the recycle bins and knowing that Disney washes theirs) and the ticket guy said they just toss them....

    Oh I think your completely right...they are about doing it so it makes the most for them...I was just curious what the difference was. Probably not something I'd ever be able to find the answer to...just being curious 'out loud'

    I'm just assuming here, Disney probably already had financial analysts/accountants or whoever look at all of these annual expenses... If making more were cheaper, then I'm sure they would've already done that...

Besides the Star Tours glasses being a tad more expensive, the cost to produce the glasses are very cheap.
    like i said, disney can care less about that, they just dont want to make more glasses if they dont need to

    There was a CM handing them out (actually 2, but one in the morning and one in the afternoon) for the June 14 media day I was there. I even have pictures on my phone.

    Those shipments they allegedly get in every week are nothing compared to the shipments that they would need if they gave the glasses away.

    CM: "Here's a pair for you."
    me: "Oh I don't need one, I took one from my last ride".
    CM: "Ok." (proceeded to give other people glasses)

    I'm NOT blaming the CM, it was obviously my fault.

    Everyone doesn't, you are right. However your previous post made it seem like the reason that they asked for the glasses to be returned when people finish riding is due to safety rather than money. The reason that they ask you to return the glasses is due more to money though, rather than just safety. As I stated earlier, if they didn't ask for them to be returned and provide those receptacles, and people walked off with them, Disney would be shipping in replacement glasses by the truckload.

    Depends on the place. Some stores have this policy, some don't. Some are even higher. I know some retail employees that say they can't do anything but call loss prevention if it's under $100.

    I feel like the OP keeps getting blasted and bashed despite him/her having already having repeatedly said that they acknowledge they made a mistake and will no longer take glasses again. That's pretty much all there is to it.

Disney just takes the items u stole and said to not do it again. Do u get in trouble or kicked out? NO. I know people steal pillow pets, key chains, Mickey ears. It's easy and not noticeable if u steal.
