    Hi I'm planning on visiting Disneyworld and I was wondering does Disney parks use the same kind of 3-d glasses as other 3-d attractions and more importantly will my clip on 3-d glasses for my prescription glasses work

    Hiya Amelia!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for sending us this magical question. One of my favourite things about Disney parks is that ever since their first opening over 50 years ago, change and innovation have always been prioritized. The result is constantly evolving theme parks which keep the excitement alive, even for returning Guests. Thanks to that philosophy, the Disney theme parks now have incredible attractions that combine storytelling and the latest technology.

    Unfortunately, using prescription glasses on attractions using 3D technology can be challenging at times. After chatting with a Cast Member, it was confirmed that not all attractions use the same 3D technology, so one pair of clip-on 3D glasses may not work for all attractions. In addition, because all 3D glasses are made specifically for each ride, I would highly recommend talking to a Cast Member online or at your selected ride first, as using different glasses could pose a safety concern. 

    Now, you can do a few things to have the most enjoyable experience on those attractions. First, if you can wear contact lenses, those may be preferable, especially when the shape of the glasses is tighter, like those on Avatar Flight of Passage. Similarly, ensuring the temple tips of your glasses are adjusted before your trip will prevent your glasses from moving during rides. However, the best advice I have found is to look with your head instead of your eyes. Indeed, the main issue I have heard is that the 3D effect sometimes gets blurry along the sides of the lenses, so keeping your eyes in the center of the lenses will keep the effect clearer. Then, instead of following the action on the ride with your eyes, try to move your head to keep your eyes in the center of the lenses.

    I hope this was helpful, Amelia, and that you will have the best day ever on your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your next visit, please don't hesitate to reach back out. It is always an honour to help Guests have the best experience possible!

    Have a magical day,
