i will be flying to orlando next week for work. i have a pretty full work itinerary, but i hope to see some things on the side. i used to live there as a kid, so i wanted to check out some places from my memory banks

i was thinking about bringing a travel guitar on the plane. i know i'm not the only one that plays. anyone here know if alaska would allow me to bring my martin backpacker on as carryon/personal item? i don't wanna go a week without the git-box, but i am also considering bringing a few harmonicas. they are slightly easier to pack

Traveling with musical instruments

We know how important your musical instrument is to you, and we'll treat it with extra care. We have several options for you when traveling with your instrument.

Carry-on instruments

Small musical instruments may count as your one carry-on bag and may exceed the Standard carry-on dimensions, as long as they can be safely accommodated in a proper stowage compartment in the cabin of the aircraft.

Carry on your large instruments

If you'd prefer to have your large instrument travel with you in the cabin, you can purchase a seat for it. Please review our Cabin seat baggage information for details.

Checking your instrument

We're happy to accept musical instruments as checked baggage, provided each piece is packed in a case designed specifically for the equipment. If your travel includes multiple airlines, other restrictions may apply.

Each instrument is subject to the following checked-baggage service fees and overweight/oversize fees:

Musical instrument weight table
Musical instrument weight Fee per item
50 lbs. or less Standard checked baggage fees

Looks like the best course of action is to just purchase a seat for Martin. Think of the frequent flier miles!

rated:

if it gets too confusing, i will just bring the harmonicas :p

Just bring some cd's or an iPod so you don't have to work for your music.

ok, here i am. actually i got in around 6, but i had to screw around until now

i had to stop for some authentic mexican food at a place called tijuana flats

i wanted to try their ghost pepper sauce. i put some in the cup, but it didnt look like anything was there. i though maybe they were out...but maybe i couldnt see it becaue it's ghost pepper

Tijuana Flats is really not "authentic" Mexican food. It was opened by a White UCFer who was living with mom and dad after college. Good food, but nothing close to authentic.

Is that supposed to be cigars or cougars? Neither are good for you.

rated:
Cigars. There are better spots for cougars in town,although they will mix in with their younger competition downtown sometimes.

When you're talking about "downtown" in Orlando I'm thinking Downtown Disney, with sweaty 300lb Wisconsinites sporting Minnie Mouse fanny packs and a sunburn  Happy hunting.
