Several hand grenades were discovered in a trash can at Downtown Disney World in Florida on Tuesday night, according to area reports.

Thankfully, it turns out the grenades were duds that had been used for training exercises, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office told The Orlando Sentinel. A janitor reportedly found them in a trash can placed in an employees-only area.

Authorities removed the grenades with minimal disruption to business and said they would be destroyed in another location.
