    I was thinking about bringing our own 3D glasses to enjoy the shows and rides that hand them out...are these the same/will they work? Thank you!

    HI Kristen,

    Without knowing what type of glasses you have at home, I can't really offer advice. 

    However, I can tell you that the glasses used at WDW are more like the ones you'd get a movie theater. They're not the paper red/blue kind that you might get with a toy.

    Personally, I would not bring my own 3D glasses to WDW. It's just another thing to carry and worry about losing or breaking.

    The glasses at WDW are washed and sterilized after every use, really. I've been on a behind-the-scenes tour at Epcot and visited the central 3D glasses washing station backstage. There are HUGE dishwasher-like machines that clean every pair of glasses every time they're used. On the tour I took, I learned that a few years ago the WDW glasses washing equipment malfunctioned. While repairs were underway, Disney actually chartered a plane to send every pair of used WDW 3D glasses to the cleaning facilities at Disneyland in California and then shipped them back so that the WDW guests would have fresh glasses for every viewing. THAT'S dedication to a quality guest experience. 

    Please let us know if you have additional questions. We're happy to help.
