So disappointed with TSA at MCO. Last year, Jonah got a POTC toy pistol after the ride in their little pirate shop, to take home with him, but it broke earlier this year (just plain worn out after playing with it so much). So, this trip, it was one of the only things on his wish list. We rode the POTC ride and he was so happy to get to pick out a new one, just like the one he had (pictured below). Unfortunately, TSA confescated it this time when we went through security (we had no issues last time). They said it looked too real to allow us to fly with it. Jonah was so heart broken - started crying right there in front of everyone and didn't understand why he couldn't have his gun back. Broke my heart. I promised him I would do my best to find one online to purchase for him when we get home. 😒

That looks like a real gun???? - lala03  68.0 #86 3:11PM
That's exactly what Jeramy said, and he was like, "Are you kidding me?!" But what can you do? You don't really have a lot of say with TSA. - mrsincredible  1061.6 #4 3:15PM
Aww poor guy, so sad they made y'all do that and break his heart. Not the way to end such an amazing trip. - txdisneymomma  116.9 #64 3:08PM
Not even allowed in a checked bag? - timonT  338.8 #20 3:10PM
We bought that same gun on our last trip. They told us that we had to pack it in our bags and couldn't carry it on. Did you try to carry it on? - disneyworldsbiggestfan  62.6 #90 3:10PM
We tried to carry on, but didn't have access to our checked luggage at that point (Magical Express took care of them for us). I didn't think to ask beforehand since we didn't have issues before. They offered to escort us to the Disney store to exchange for something else, but he didn't want anything else and we really didn't have time to go back through security again, it was so crowded. - mrsincredible  1061.6 #4 3:14PM
Try calling the park. They can ship one to you. I know Disneyland does this so WDW should do the same - philliprocks  1168.1 #140 3:15PM
My hubs said he was going to do that... maybe they can help. 😊 - mrsincredible  1061.6 #4 3:17PM
Aww I'm sorry he is heart broken. I'm sure you can get a new one. Good luck. Hope all is well - mmddgp  637.4 #10 3:22PM
That's terrible !!!! Hope you can get him one !!! - skcanfield  511.5 #14 3:39PM
That's just ridiculous. I hate the way traveling has become. You never now what is safe and what is not. Poor baby. Hugs. - 5disneylovers  1025.6 #5 4:01PM
That really stinks!! I hope you can find another one. - disneycm  652.2 #9 4:40PM
Sorry to hear this! It's heart breaking as a mom to watch these things happen! - DizneyGirl  760.9 #7 4:43PM
Awwwww....poor little dear!! So sorry to hear that:-( Contact disney. They're really good at things like this. Hopefully. Lol - mickeynme  172.5 #49 5:01PM
I'm so sorry that happened. I would have recommended you put it in your checked bag. As you probably know, I work at an international airport (NOT for TSA). I can tell you their employees are not respected (for valid reasons) at SEA either! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1130.7 #3 5:02PM
Poor little man!! If you have a receipt from the park there is a number that you can call them and they will send you one. We seem to call and get something every time we get home. If that doesn't work - I am going in January and I'll get him one! - modisneyluv  15.1 #192 5:07PM
Awww, thank you so much!! - mrsincredible  1061.6 #4 5:43PM
I'll look for one at DL this weekend. If I find one I'll get it and mail next week. We had a similar incident happen to us with a small snow globe. We were at WDW the weekend the liquid ban went into place. We never thought of the snow globe being banned. - jacdanfan  9184.1 #3 5:16PM
Thank you so much, Gary!! - mrsincredible  1061.6 #4 5:44PM
Same thing happen to us a few years ago. That was the only thing my son really wanted too. - LOVEMICKEY  13.1 #8631 5:19PM
The cast member working at the shop outside the Pirates ride told us at checkout to make sure we put it in the checked bags. They should make a habit of telling everyone that. How heartbreaking for your little guy! - brhimler  4.6 #481 5:25PM
That is RIDICULOUS!! I know they're trying to keep us safe, but that gun is OBVIOUSLY a toy! My 4-year-old students would know that was a toy! Poor Jonah!!! Call Disney mail order and they will be able to get you another one!!! I'll get you the number. Kate lost a pair of earrings she bought at DTD and I searched all over the Internet trying to find them. When I couldn't, Robert called Disney and they referred him to mail order. This awesome woman went to 3 different stores at DTD til she found them. We paid for them over the phone and she mailed them out. We haven't received them yet, but she was awesome to find them for us! - BagGal  239.7 #32 5:48PM
That is so awesome!! Thank you for sharing the number - we will definitely give them a call!! - mrsincredible  1061.6 #4 4:28AM
That's awful! Gary already posted about our incident. It was very upsetting! We have had other strange episodes with TSA at MCO. Don't get it. One time they asked me to give them a number from 1 to 3. When I said '3', they counted back in line - which was Gary, and pulled him out for a security check! Tell me how that makes us safer? Good grief. They can really put a damper on the end of your vacation - as if you don't feel bad enough as it is that it's over! - goofygal  8838.2 #6 5:53AM
πŸ˜• - jacdanfan  9184.1 #3 6:02AM
Poor little guy..I hope you can find another that's so sad that they would do that... - dxcmama  300.6 #23 6:04AM
Bless his heart! TSA always stops me! I guess I look dangerous! I hope you find your lil guy a new one! - girlonfire  54.1 #99 6:40AM
