Exclamation Help! Forgot sunglasses!

Hoping that someone here will have a brilliant helpful idea.

My dad drove me to the airport hotel where I am sleeping before my early morning flight to Orlando. Just realized I forgot my sunglasses at home.

Does ANYONE know any place on Disney property to buy either sunglasses to clip on my prescription glasses or ones that will fit over my glasses? Feeling really stupid just now and hoping against hope someone will have an idea.

Thanks to anyone who can offer an idea!

Get a ride to the nearest Walgreens. They have a nice selection of sunglasses that fit over different prescription eyeglass frames as well as clipons if you prefer those.

They’re good quality for about $15-$25, too.

There are a couple Walgreens not far from WDW.

I’ve never seen any similar sold at WDW.

I did get some sunglasses from Disney a few years ago that I love and are still going strong and they were amazingly cheap, but in recent years, I haven't seen anything like that any longer, which is a huge shame. I'm with Dot - I'd try somewhere like Walgreens.

Relaxing on board the Magic. The trip report for our back-to-back cruises on the Disney Magic has started!

Another option could be to ask someone from home to overnight them to you. I had to overnight a forgotten item to Disney for a relative once.

On Disney property? I thought there was a sunglass place in Adventureland. I remember seeing it in a YouTube video not too long ago. I would think there would be someplace at DTD that would sell them too.

I left my prescription sunglasses home once as well and ended up doing without for the 5 days that we were there. Not fun! When we got home, I made sure to write it on my packing list so I would never forget them again!
