    My daughter (7) has microtia, basically she does not have a complete right ear and has a lot of trouble wearing glasses. Do the glasses at the 3D attractions depend on your ears to keep them on or do the grip the head at all? I am thinking about getting a strap to put on them would this be permitted or an even possible?
    I was just hoping that maybe someone has some experience they could share.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. MuppetVision and Philharmagic both require glasses and they go over your ears. I wouldn't see why you wouldn't be able to put a strap on them quick before the show starts and then take it off once the show is done. You could always talk to a CM, but I don't see an issue, especially since it's for her being able to watch the show.

    As adults, yes. This question is about a 7 year old child.

    Anyways it depends on the attraction. I always feel like the yellow ones at Toy Story Mania and Mickey's Philharmagic are really tight.

    Thanks I think will put a strap in my pocket just in case if it doesn't work we will just find other rides to have fun on. That is the nice thing about Disney there are always alternatives.

    If you're set on doing those rides, like I said, if the strap doesn't work, talk with a CM. I'm sure they'll help you rig up something to enjoy those attractions. It's one of the best places in the world for things like this. They'll go out of their way to make sure you have a great time... and making sure you get to see and experience all the attractions!

    To be honest, I don't think any of them are totally dependent to touching the ears except maybe for alignment. They have curved in frames that kind of act like a spring to hold them on your head. I don't think any curve downward to go around your ears. At least not that I remember anyway.

    Right, they are spring-like and don't really curl downward to go around the ear, still, the ear being there holds them from falling down further. You can hold them ok, except maybe for Star Tours where she may want to hold onto the armrest because of movement. I think the little strap idea is probably best and plan for that. You have the glasses in hand a long time before the ride or show starts so you can prep it as you pass the time.
