One of the highlights of the fall season for Disney World is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. This separate ticketed event has special stage shows, meet & greet with rare characters and of course, trick or treating at Magic Kingdom! Many guests often wonder, how will I get my candy home from the Halloween party? Especially for those flying. Today we are here to answer just this.
First, here is what TSA (Transportation Security Administration) has to say:
As you can see CANDY is allowed in both carry on and checked bags. However, food items (candy) can not be larger than 3.4 oz in your carry on bags. Most of the candy handed out is fun size and this shouldn’t be an issue.
Therefore your 2 choices are to either put your candy in your checked suitcase or carry-on bag.
Tips & Cautions:
- Caution for checked bags, you run the risk of your candy melting being transported in your checked bags.
- Leave room in your suitcase, or even bring an extra bag/suitcase for your Candy! For those flying Southwest, each passenger gets 2 checked bags FREE.
- Checked bags caution, candy can get HEAVY, be sure if you do not bring an extra suitcase to leave plenty of room or you run the risk of being over weight limit.
- Bring large clear Ziploc bags to store your candy in, making it easier for TSA to review and check.
- Carry-on caution, TSA may ask you to remove candy to be inspected (why having your bag organized and candy separate is a great idea).
- Carry-on caution, you run the risk of not all your candy being cleared, meaning not being able to take it home. Ultimately it is up to the TSA agent to let it through or not.
