Just learned that Star Tours gets 300 3D glasses stolen a day. They are $6 per glasses. That's $657,000 per year....DONT STEAL.

And the theives are probably the biggest complainers about the price hike! - Calypso  867.5 #215 1:28PM
Thats just sad. I dont understand the appeal of taking the glasses (or anything for that matter) - Shunasee  182.6 #2217 1:14PM
 wow - CM_SmS1291  544.6 #373 1:16PM
With that much $. I bet they have a required glasses return after the ride soon enough. - mcarthy6  426.5 #517 1:16PM
Wow, thanks for the info. That's horrible how many are stolen daily. - WhatHappensInDisneyland  2201.9 #70 1:17PM
300 :o thats a lot!!!! i think those Disney undercovers are sleeping.... we should take their positions over lol - VinylSteve  515.4 #409 1:17PM
That's Messed up. It's why they raise prices. - Darla  22.2 #6965 1:17PM
BCC needs to stop handing these out to his friends - Dave  13493.0 #2 1:17PM
that's crazy - Ashbunn  49.9 #4787 1:18PM
People are so cheap! Stop stealing! - NeverlandTink  423.1 #522 1:19PM
Stealing is bad but I wonder if people would buy them if they sold them at the park. - SorcererMky  306.1 #875 1:23PM
.. One of the reasons they keep raising AP prices.. - Calypso  867.5 #215 1:27PM
I think they should collect them at the end of the ride. Like have someone make sure that EVERYONE returns a pair. I still don't see why you would steal them though. Its terrible for your eyes to wear them out in the sun, and where else are you going to wear them?? - acpowers13  148.8 #2732 1:27PM
Time to put sensors on em - miguelg916  56.8 #4512 1:29PM
Sensors is a great idea. Could you just imagine the look on peoples face when they think they just got away with it. As soon as they are off the ramp BEEP BEEP BEEP. Priceless. - PopcornYeti  378.6 #594 1:37PM
Please don't steal. - TheDonald  72.3 #4108 1:40PM
No wonder ticket prices went up - BuzzVader  37.2 #5372 1:42PM
OMG. That's crazy. I would never dream of stealing from my second home! Thanks for sharing this information. - prettyinpink  10.4 #10752 1:44PM
Don't steal ..that simple - DisneyMM  116.0 #3306 1:44PM

Don't steal the ketchup either - Ms.Mouseketeer  1008.8 #185 3:08PM
Daaangggg. I'm going to hunt some people down next time I go! - MagicFeather  79.6 #3953 3:09PM
See that's why they had to raise ticket prices!!! Don't steal people!! - luvdsny81  34.1 #5618 3:10PM
Wowzers!!! Next time I'm in the park and I see someone with those I'm totally calling them out...hmph - Nicholle  132.0 #3014 3:12PM
I have to say I agree that it would be interesting to see if there were any impact if they sold these. But then I suppose the trick would be differentiating them from the ones handed out for the ride, and if they're different, people would probably still steal to have the "ride version". Maybe sensors would be a good idea. - BrettX209  266.1 #1199 4:11PM
Wow, that's crazy!!! =( - SJCSharkie  315.5 #822 4:15PM
It would take longer but I say they collect the glasses BEFORE they unlock the seatbelts. This way they can collect each set of glasses from each guest and not lose any. This would add 30 seconds per flight but prevent the loss of $$$! - Bbnmcas  9.7 #11199 4:15PM
Wow, not only am I shocked at the price, but that so many are taken each day. - proudcanuck  478.6 #445 4:18PM
Nighthawk: pocket change or not, its still hundreds of thousands of dollars that can be spent elsewhere to better the park for a better experience. - KAJi  550.8 #369 4:20PM
Throw the hooligans in Disney Jail!!! - 1ManWolfPack  62.8 #4349 4:42PM
@ Brett that's a good point. - SorcererMky  306.1 #875 4:53PM
SOO sad and those are the same people who complain about the price hikes :/ - CarmenINwonderlanD  265.1 #1207 4:59PM
Yeah, stealing stinks. I don't care how big a corp., how rich the person, whatever. It adds up and it's WRONG. - MoonWillow  381.3 #589 5:13PM
This makes me livid. People that steal need to find a new place to hang out. - Krissy Marissy  411.2 #539 5:19PM
The people stealing these need to go back to Six Flags - Kari_Bo_Berry  361.5 #640 5:27PM
Just curious, where did this info come from? That seems awfully high. But who knows? - unclebeezy  255.1 #1303 5:29PM
Honestly, what is the point other than their too cheap to buy a souvenir in one of the shops - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 5:31PM
Some times I take the movie theater glasses.. But I WILL NEVER TAKE THEM FROM DISNEYLAND.. I wounder if ppl think the can be use as souvenirs.. Now why don't a CM stand where the bins are and just say PLEASE LEAVE THE GLASSES IN THE BINS THANK YOU.. that why ppl will get the idea it's not there's too keep.. - HOTDOGsMOMMY  66.5 #4252 5:37PM
DANG! They need to put a sign up for that. That's crazy! - CadaverousPallor  268.4 #1183 5:39PM
That's horrible! What on earth is someone going to do with them? Stupid - VeloMouseGirl  549.8 #371 5:43PM
I saw 2 kids that wanted to take theirs home, dad said "no", they threw a fit, so now they own 2 pair of useless glasses! Parents do anything for their kids! Even steal! - PREZ  3.9 #24972 5:46PM
You would think it would be easy enough to add a loss prevention RFID deal to every pair so if you leave the area it sets off an alarm, drops a net and fires a short taser burst. - Zooter  1402.8 #126 5:46PM
Why steal those? Do they even work for anything other than ST? - minigirl1156  771.9 #243 5:47PM
LOL @ Zooter!!! - TinkKim  190.2 #2114 5:47PM
I would pay to see that zooter. That would scare anyone. Lol - Chumash28  1207.7 #143 5:48PM
Zooter- excellent idea. I like it. A lot. - Krissy Marissy  411.2 #539 5:49PM
ok I'll bring mine back!!! - Katrayher  781.0 #239 5:51PM
Dang that's crazy! Looks like DL needs to find another way to collect those glasses if their losing that much mula! - LAHaPpY13420  43.0 #5073 5:53PM
i'm keeping mine - toph  2418.2 #60 5:54PM
Lol @ Zooter! The thing is, it would only take once for that to happen, word would spread that it could happen if you take them, and problem solved! - MoonWillow  381.3 #589 5:58PM
HDM - a CM does stand by the exit asking for the glasses. However, I've seen (1) the guest drop their glasses in the bin and take a pair from a bin down the hall, and (2) the CM at the end of the exit was distracted answering questions and set walked right out. The CM need to pay extra close attention to the guests when they exit. - Bbnmcas  9.7 #11199 6:10PM
And those same people complain about the increase in ticket costs! Just sad. - People_Mover  24.1 #6665 6:13PM
Wow!! That's crazy $$$!! - MinnieJ  281.9 #1043 6:19PM
LOL @Zooter!!! I would sit by the exit all day just watching that!!! - WhatHappensInDisneyland  2201.9 #70 6:20PM
Look Disney is Walt's Legacy. You don't steal from Walt. Understand! - Evilstitch  338.5 #709 6:24PM
Maybe they need to be part of the ride, chain them to the seat or something. - JungleCruiser  181.2 #2239 6:33PM
It's weird to me that anyone would even want them  - TiggerBelle  515.6 #408 6:40PM
Wow! That's a lot of glasses walking out of the park. Do you guys have the grocery trolleys that are chained up over there? You have to put in a $2 coin to unlock your trolley and you don't get your money back without putting it back when you've finished. They should do that with the glasses! Lol. O would totally buy a cheap pair of souvenir glasses but I would not steal a pair from the ride. - TrueFromOzLovesDisney  531.4 #391 6:44PM
Yes, some places do, but its a quarter. Maybe more like airline headphones. You just buy the darn things. - bluefairy  643.8 #312 12:28AM

@jacs1234 Are you talking about a Toonie? - proudcanuck  478.6 #445 6:46PM
I saw a pair on eBay a couple of weeks ago saying they were from Opening Day! How would anyone believe that jerk! I remember the price was ridiculous too' - no1goof  248.3 #1377 6:47PM
Yeah. They were selling em for $30 and claimed they were from opening day. A bunch of MWers reported em as stolen and I think the listing was taken down. - Dreamer  276.1 #1096 6:50PM
the stupid thing is they're not even branded with disney or star tours or star wars, the only thing on them is d3d which stands for dolby 3d. I'm sure they're the same passive glasses used for any movie that uses dolby 3d technology. there's nothing special about them. - Dog_with_Keys  7.2 #13862 7:00PM
Dang. What else do people STEAL? When people use the electrical outlets to charge cell phones isn't that a form of stealing? Everyone is guilty of taking something from Disney.  Shame to you all. - GrumpYchuck  55.3 #4569 7:01PM

That's terrible! - heather02  23.0 #6837 7:18PM
Where did these numbers come from? Is there any truth to these exact numbers? And besides that, this isn't the reason why prices are going up. Disney will keep raising prices regardless. - LittleGreenAlien  244.8 #1416 7:19PM
Those are nice looking glasses. I guess people steal them to take off the lenses and place shade lenses. Still no excuse. Does anyone know if any type of 3-D glasses work for te attraction? I know the theater I go to sell 3-D glasses. - OynnhoJ  107.9 #3466 7:20PM
OMG I used a power outlet to charge my phone for like 5 min during aladdin until I got busted by a CM, does this mean im on the DL blacklist as a thief? - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 7:30PM

Now we know why the increase in the pass prices lol - cowboygoofy  219.0 #1742 8:16PM
Disney Land makes about 100k in profit a day. So it would take them more than 3 days to make up that money. Think would u would 3 days from 8am- midnight for free? Nope you wouldn't. So don't steal. - mozbaby  132.2 #3011 8:47PM
That's ridiculous who would want to steal those glasses? Lol they gonna wear them as shades? >.> - Alena4444  6.4 #15157 8:49PM

I'm ashamed to admit this now... but my 6 year old did walk off with a pair right after the attraction re-opened. He didn't even realize it, just had them in his hand as we walked off. We realized it as we were getting in the car. When we went on this weekend, my older daughter said something to him about making sure he put his glasses in the bins and he turned bright red. - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 9:15PM

The IMAX theaters cut their losses of the glasses to almost nothing with simple RFiD tags. I'm sure if it was a real loss issue Disney would do the same. I'm not saying it's right to steal. I just don't think Disney is really concerned about it. - Uknowthatguy  37.8 #5340 10:52PM
IMAX glasses def don't compare to the quality of the star tours ones, plus 3D movies are expensive - KAJi  550.8 #369 11:30PM
