Where dreams come true… if your dream is discovering hand grenades in a trash can.

A Walt Disney World maintenance worker found three grenades while he was emptying trash cans in the Downtown Disney section of the park at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, CF news 13 reported.

The grenades, however, were hollowed-out and therefore posed no danger.

Just in case, though, deputies said the casings would be destroyed.

Jeff Williamson, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's Office, told WOGX the grenades seemed to have been used for some kind of training, though he wasn't sure why the casings wound up in the trash. The area where they were found was open only to employees.

The startling find had little effect on visitors to the park. "There was minimal disruption to guests," Disney spokeswoman Kathleen Prihoda said, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
