Among the 1129 identifiable characters featured in the Disney and Pixar animated canon, there are a total of 61 characters who wear glasses, from half-moon spectacles, like Smee, to round eyeglasses, like Mirabel and Doc. That's about 5%.
Some are popular and easily recognizable, in large part because they wear glasses; others are a little more obscure.
