The 14-acre land lets visitors enter a galaxy far, far away and find unique Star Wars items, including collectible Coca-Cola bottles.
But a TSA policy is bad news for fans hoping to take the exclusive Coke bottles home with them.
TSA has banned the bottles because they are designed to look like thermal detonators.
“Replica and inert explosives are not permitted in either carry-on or checked bags,” a TSA spokesperson wrote in an email to Spectrum News.
The bottles feature the Star Wars language of Aurebesh and a special version of the Coca-Cola logo.
But, according to TSA, the bottle's design could confuse screeners at airport security checkpoints, leading to long delays.
Fans have been asking whether or not the items would be allowed on flights.
"The issue concerning Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge-themed soda bottles has been brought to our attention by the general public, as these items could reasonably seen by some as replica hand grenades," TSA said in an updated statement. "We appreciate the concerns being raised, because replica explosives are not permitted in either carry-on or checked bags. While we continue to review this issue, TSA officers will maintain the discretion to prohibit any item through the screening checkpoint if they believe it poses a security threat."
Travelers are, however, permitted to take lightsabers and droids they build at the attraction in carry-on bags.
Spectrum News reached out to Disney for comment, but the company has not responded.
Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens August 29.
