Galaxy's Edge TSA Rules Coke

TSA has recently confirmed that Galaxy’s Edge Coke Bottles are not banned from carry-on and checked luggage.

TSA originally responded to a question asked by Touring Plans on Twitter that Star Wars-themed Coke bottles are banned from checked and carry-on luggage, saying, “Replica and inert explosives aren’t allowed in either carry-on or checked bags.”

However, TSA later released a statement ““The issue concerning Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge-themed soda bottles has recently been brought to our attention by the general public, as these items could reasonably be seen by some as replica hand grenades. We appreciate the concerns being raised, because replica explosives are not permitted in either carry-on or checked bags. We have completed our review, and instructed our officers to treat these as an oversized liquid. Because these bottles contain liquids larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters), they should be put in checked baggage or emptied to be brought on as carry-on item. TSA officers will maintain the discretion to prohibit any item through the screening checkpoint if they believe it poses a security threat.”

They’re $5.49 each, and shaped to resemble a droid. Note, because of the popularity of these sodas, you can only buy three per transaction.

    This was causing a hubbub for a brief period. It is good that TSA was able to find a way to worknwitth Disney fans so that they can bring home their souvenirs. Hopefully only good will come of that decision.
