Splitsville: A New Luxury Experience


When guests hear the words “Walt Disney World,” immediately visions of characters, theme parks and dining emerge.  I am here to tell you that soon bowling is sure to become synonymous with Disney.  You heard me – bowling!!

 

A wonderful new entertainment venue debuted in December 2012 – Splitsville!  Splitsville is a modern day take on bowling and billiards spanning two levels in Downtown Disney West Side.  With 30 bowling lanes available and billiard tables scattered throughout, there is no shortage of opportunities for fun.  There are even opportunities to enjoy live music and dancing, as well as adult beverages.

 

Splitsville is more than just a bowling alley – it is an experience.  This is not your neighborhood bowling establishment – it is “luxury lanes.”  There are interesting murals and other design elements throughout.  Instead of just one long line of bowling lanes, the lanes are divided into sections within the facility thereby creating a more intimate setting for you, your family and friends.  With comfy seating and large tables, it’s perfect for enjoying some of the fabulous food.  Tables are also available both inside and outside on a patio to enjoy the cuisine without exerting yourself bowling. 
 

I know some of you are laughing right now and questioning my sanity.  I get it and readily admit that typically bowling and fabulous food are not uttered in the same breath; however, Splitsville has managed to achieve combining the two in stellar fashion.  We’re not talking just “getting your grub on,” we’re talking edamame, salads, seared Ahi tuna, pulled pork, mahi mahi with voodoo shrimp, as well as sushi and more traditional fare of pizza and burgers.  You will want to top off your noshing with a signature sundae, brownie a la mode or giant cake – “a mountain of red velvet cake and frosting with layers so high you might need a ladder!”  I am still feeling the skepticism and understand that just because an establishment offers more upscale fare does not mean the end result will tempt the taste buds.  I must admit that I had reservations about the quality of food, but I assure you that Splitsville delivers – one of my favorites, the sushi, is absolutely fantastic. 

 

Currently Splitsville is open 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.  Walk-in rates are available, as well as Priority Bowling (allows your group to receive the next available lane(s) upon check-in for a maximum of 2 lanes with a maximum of 8 bowlers per lane). 



Splitsville is now one of my Walt Disney World “must-dos.”  How about you – are you ready to “roll in and rock out?”

  1. We visted the place on our last trip when we arrived. It looked so cool we returned that week to have lunch and bowl. We acually skipped a half day at the park and had a blast. The pizza was great and a good price. We had some to take back to the resort. It beat trying to avoid the cheerleader at the parks.

    My suggestion is to eat after you bowl since bowling cost is by the hour.

Universal's Volcano Bay Private Cabana Review

On a recent training in Universal Orlando Resort, agents Maci, Ashley, Aubrey and Yaritza and I rented a private cabana for the day at Universal's Volcano Bay. There are multiple locations around the park along with the option to have an upper or lower level, all of which reflect in various pricing. Agent Ashley received an email the day before informing her of where to check-in the next morning. While we were personally escorted to the cabana shortly after check in, the line at the check in location is the same as those getting towels, meaning it was not short. As expressed by an additional guest checking into a different cabana, we would have greatly appreciated a separate line, since this caused our group about a half hour wait. We're all adults and made great use of our time getting some fun pictures before the park was filled with guests, but this is important to be aware of if you are traveling with children.  We had an upper level Cabana which came with a splendid view!

The Villas at the Disneyland Hotel Review

I love staying at the Disneyland Hotel so when I got the opportunity to stay at the new Villas at the Disneyland Hotel during opening weekend, I couldn’t pass it up. Because it was opening weekend, we were greeted in the entrance way of the lobby with balloons and many photo opportunities. When we arrived, there was a mural of the Haunted Mansion. I love how the seats in the main lobby were designed like the teacups in the parks. You can check in using the Disneyland app, drop your bags with bell services and head into the parks or use the amenities why you wait until your room is ready. When your room is ready, the resort will send you a text and you can use the Disneyland app on your mobile device to unlock the room. We dropped off our bags and went straight to the parks. We received a text around 1PM that our room was ready. In the new Discovery Tower (the Villas), you'll find that the lobby is very spacious with many places to sit while you read or wait for your family. Th

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res
