Question glow sticks in carry on?

The night we are arriving, we are attending MVMCP (11/21) and I wanted to bring some glow sticks for my little girl. I'm not banking on our luggage arriving in time so I wanted to bring them in the carry on so we'll have them. Will the airlines consider that a liquid and not allow it? Anyone try this yet?

Glow sticks are not allowed as carry on's. Your best bet is to ship them to the hotel before you leave.

I didnt even think about a sippy cup souvenier one of thoes ones that has the stuff floating around in the outer part of it. Bought it for Granddaughter it was packed up in my backpack with the rest of the gifts and I couldnt take that. Not having any checked luggage they threw it away. I doubt glow sticks would pass either.

I think glow sticks would fall under the 3-1-1 rule, since I can't find anything specifically banning them. Therefore, you should be able to take them as long as they fit in your quart-sized bag. I think the challenge will be finding the right bag and glow sticks to fit, and still be able to protect the glow sticks from being cracked too early.

Your best bet will be the short and fat variety; the glow bracelets and necklaces are going to be too long to fit the bag and too prone to early cracking. In my experience, simply dropping such glow sticks can cause them to crack, and therefore not be glow-y when you need them. The short-fat ones are much harder to crack, and so they'll not be as likely to be accidentally broken in your bag before you're ready. (As a bonus, they usually glow longer and brighter, so if they do get cracked but you use them within a few hours, they may still be okay by then!)

When in doubt, leave them out.

I wouldn't chance it. I'd just toss them into your luggage. How many did you want to take? You could mail them to your resort in a padded envelope. It shouldn't cost much.

I am trying to remember where I read about the glow cubes and other items that someone had bought at the park and TSA would not let them board with them (searching allears as well to see if I can find the post). I remember this becuase of our trip in 07 when I doing the research for it.

As the others have said, when in doubt, send them another way.

We just came back a few weeks ago and on the way down there my mom packed the glow sticks in her carry-on (we went to MNSSHP the first night) and we got them through. We had necklaces and bracelets, both were the long skinny ones you have to 'break' to glow. Maybe it'll just depend on who the TSA agent is at the time, but we didn't have an issue. We did have them in their original packaging too. Good Luck!

those "glow cube is the on/off ice cubes that some resturants put in drinks and what not correct?

those is exempt because its not run by chemical reactions, they're actually battery operated.

I must have been day-dreaming it as I cannot find it anywhere between here and allears. I have found lots of post where they checked it in their luggage and a couple that have taken them through TSA. It may have been that the post I read (or dreamed of) that they got a TSA agent who was having a bad day. Sorry for the confusion.

IMO ... they are definitely a liquid, and subject to the 3-1-1 rule. As for the airline itself - call and ask if they have any problem with you bringing them in carry-on.

Nothing says you can't have a nice, sturdy box to put the 3-1-1 bag into, between Security and the Gate ...
