    Would I get in trouble if...

    Would I get in trouble if I perhaps took a pair of 3D glasses as a tiny souvenir from a show?

    I would even ask for permition!

    If you hide them, I don't think they care. Think about how many of those must get taken out! But, I guess If you asked and the castmember was nice they'd let you.

    Technically it is stealing from Disney when you take anything that you are not suppose to take. The worst they would do is confiscate the glasses.

    IF you asked permission and permission was granted by an employee who has the power to do so then there would be no problem. Getting permission from a janitor would not count as it would have to be from a ride attendant.

    Churchy now hides all of her Disney souvenirs, lol.

    I don't know, I don't think that is the worst thing they could do.... they could throw you out of the park/parks!

    I have read stories of people being accused of things that were not even true and being thrown "Off-property" So if you were staying onsite you could even lose your rooms. Granted the charge was a bit more than taking bug-eyes.

    But, seriously, why do something that really, in all honesty, is stealing from Disney?

    Afterall... if they wanted guests to take the glasses, they would be paper glasses, right?

    JMHO YMMV

    If you really want a pair of 3-D glasses I suggest going to see The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3-D. Why? Since you pay for the glasses, after the movie you get to keep them!

    You can buy similar glasses on-line for a couple of dollars, so why take the chance of getting caught stealing a pair!?

    Here is the link to the company that makes them for Disney: http://www.3dglasses.net/polarized%203D%20Glasses.htm As you can see it only costs $3 + S&H to own your own "offical" Disney glasses.

    I guess that depends on how Disney looks at theft of park property....

    and on your parents.

    If you were my kid, I'd make you take them back and apologise to Park Management then you would be grounded for quite a while.

    Lol... great idea! But I think they want the glasses because they're from WDW... hehe. This does give me the idea to ask a cast member next time I am there! I want a pair, too! Heck, I would even pay for them.

    Nah, be a good sport and just kindly return those glasses to the bins on the way out (the nice CMs aren't there just for the sake of smiling and waving goodbye, after all).

    There have been a couple of occasions where I've noticed 3-D glasses prominently carried around the parks quite a hike from their respective shows, and quietly pulled the wayward youths aside and persuaded them to relinquish the specs. Nothing harsh, honest--genuinely gave them the benefit of the doubt (very generous of me), and made sure the glasses either got turned in to a CM, or personally returned to the show.

    (In case you were wondering, the halo's in the mail.)
