FYI, there is a limit on personal transport of alcoholic beverages in most cases, but not because of any terrorism issue; it is because of tariff limits on transporting alcohol over state lines without paying state excise tax on it -- also known as bootlegging.
Baggage compartments of airliners a pressurized as part of the same system as the passenger compartment. If you experience pressure changes sufficient to mess with a commercial container, you probably have bigger problems.

OP might want to consider a "Brita" bottle with filter to carry as an option. Just refill as necessary. Cheaper in the long run and environmentally friendlier.

But wouldn't it be the same as packing large bottles of shampoo,conditioner, mouthwash (most like water), etc like we do every trip and never have a problem.

I put them in a large plastic bag just in case. But never had any leakage ever in 10 trips.

Don't really want to buy individual bottles on site since I can get 24 bottles here for only $2.29. And if I have them shipped it is about $7-$8 and then paying for the $10 Disney box fee is too much to pay for water in my opinion.

Would never walk to Hess station either for water.

Again just wandering if anyone has put water bottles in there checked luggage before.

I agree that pressure isn't going to be a problem. I would be more concerned about what could happen if heavier bags are thrown on top of your bag. Water bottles are thinner plastic than shampoo bottles so the question is, if you have a bag full of water bottles and some really heavy bags are tossed on top of your bag, what happens? Do they just flex a bit and absorb the impact or could they rupture?

You could try an experiment. Fill your bag with water bottles. Fill two other bags with heavy items. Drop first one and then the second bag from a height of 3 or 4 feet on top of the water filled bag and see what happens!

Yes, that's been made clear. Posters have provided alternatives to packing 25+ pounds of water. You don't seem to like any of them. The $10 is only charged by convention properties; if you're not staying at one, there's no charge. CPT Tripps' suggestion of a filtering, reusable individual bottle is especially brilliant. Paying $2.29 for water is too much when it's available free. And plenty of DISers do walk to the Hess station.

That's all great. I really didn't need alternatives. I know what the alternatives are. In my first post I asked if someone has done this before not what else should I do.

FYI: I am staying at a convention hotel, BWI.

And the filtering bottle is "brilliant", I thought about all of these ideas too. Again just wondering if anyone else has tried this before.

You may eventually get a reply from someone who says they have tried this. But just because they say they tried it successfully, it's no guarantee that it will "work" for you. I believe the main reason you're not getting targeted responses is because doing this appears senseless to most people. Too much weight, too much risk of both leakage and of damaging other passengers and/or the airlines property. Finding you have dripping wet, soaked luggage (and contents) at baggage claim doesn't exactly sound a great vacation start.

Easy answer-- have your preferred brand of water delivered, or buy it there.

Thanks for your input. That would probably be the best thing to do.

I wonder if putting a fragile sticker on the luggage would work. But that would probably translate into throw me as hard as you can and pile every suitcase you have on top of me.

FYI to anyone who is following along. You can get FREE water at any of the counter service restaurants by simply asking. It isn't bottled water, but you can get a cup of water for free.

Yes, it is the same. Just suggesting a "green" option.

Ok, I'll bite.

I successfully brought bottled sports drink with me in my checked luggage. I was running the marathon and wanted the same concoction that I had trained with. WDW tap water (even carbon-filtered) bothers my stomach, and the grocery delivery services were way more expensive than bringing it from home. I had plenty of room for souvenirs on the way back. (In this case, it was a bottle of red wine.)

No big deal, as long as your bag isn't overweight (and you've probably thought that through by now). You could even wrap it in one of those giant ziplock bags. Factory-sealed plastic drink bottles are pretty strong. They manage to ship them all over the place without breaking.

As others have mentioned, the cargo hold is pressurized. They'd have a lot of problems if it wasn't.

Did you try doing a search on this topic before starting a new thread? I have seen dozens of threads on this board where this issue as been discussed ad nauseum.

Thank you my friend. You have given me hope.

Sorry to have made you "sick".

Search wasn't working so no I did not.

When this board's search feature isn't working, Google works. In addition to a couple of DIS threads, there were results from ask.com, Cruise Critic, mousebuzz, and more. And again, the TSA website is a great source.
