Don’t Fly With Those! TSA Bans Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Coca-Cola Bottles

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is known for its immersiveness. One of the items adding to the immersive nature of the new land is its exclusive Coca-Cola bottles.

Check it out! The Coca-Cola bottles look like thermal detonators! 


According to TSA’s @AskTSA Twitter account, these unique Coke bottles look too much like a real thermal detonator. Therefore, they could create concern that they are real weapons at screening points. This means you can’t take one of these bottles home in your carry-on or checked bag — from either Disneyland or Disney World.

According to TSA rules, “replica and inert explosives aren’t allowed in either carry-on or checked bags.” If that leads you to ask if you can bring your brand new lightsaber on your flight — the answer is yes!

Light Saber Rules on TSA Website

You can bring a lightsaber home in your checked or carry-on baggage because, according to the TSA, there are no real lightsabers. This means the lightsabers you make or buy in the parks are not replicas of real weapons.

Editor’s Note 8/30/19:

Since publication of this original article TSA has reviewed their policy and issued a statement. The bottles will be treated as over-sized liquids. If you want to take your bottle home full it must be in your checked bag as it is over three ounces. If you want to take your bottle home in your carry-on it must be empty. Source: Orlando Sentinel

  1. so it looks like if you want one for a souvenir of your trip after you empty it you will have to ship it home. Not that big of a deal we have shipped other things home before.

  2. What if you drank the Coke and then packed the bottle and lid in two separate places? Could you take it home on a plan then?

  3. Can’t imagine these will be around for too long. Cool idea but if you can’t keep it as a souvenir, why buy this vs a regular bottle or fountain beverage. Hopefully Coca Cola and the Disney Imagineers will come up with a more TSA friendly design.
