Toy Story Mania when partially blind?

I am wondering if anyone with partial sight has gone on Toy Story Mania. I didn't realize it was in 3D. When it comes to 3D I sometimes can't see it because I don't have full vision in my left eye (It's at about 30%, mostly I see black in that eye). For example, last time I was in WDW I could see Philharmagic but when I was at the M&M store (I think in NYC) I couldn't see the the 3D show they had.

I think it might have something to do with the quality of the 3D, I am curious of others experiences.

Well, Disney's 3D is pretty good quality. Why not just try it and see for your self. (pun intended)

One of my eyes is about 20/200 and I do fine with all the 3d shows/rides at WDW

I'm not sure which system they use but using one eye with the glasses on will make the projections look 2D as opposed to 3D. This is dependent on which system they use, though.

It isn't this system (the red/blue glasses used for the Wii)...


I'm pretty sure its the straight horizontal/vertical polarization system... but it might be the spiral system, too...

I think if you could handle Philharmagic, you'll be fine with TSM. I'm legally blind (and also completely colorblind) and I rode Toy Story Mania just fine. It's one of my favorites! Philharmagic, on the other hand, gave me a pounding headache.

I'm legally blind in my left eye and I don't remember having any trouble with the ride when we were there a few years ago.... I can't really see 3D stuff either,but I was able to shoot at stuff and play right along with my family.
