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.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T.

Toledo Review - A Tale of Two Tapas

I have dined at Toledo twice. Shortly after Grand Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs opened in 2019, I ate there with my mom, and most recently with my fellow agent Maci during our visit for Magic Kingdom’s 50th Anniversary. Located on the 16th floor, the atmosphere at this dinner only restaurant is just lovely. Floor to ceiling windows with tasteful d├ęcor offer lots of light. You will get a view of all the parks, but some are certainly better than others depending on which area of the restaurant you dine in. Even if you aren’t facing the windows, the ambiance of the orange and pink stain glass on the ceiling and greenery from the trees in the restaurant are a welcome sight. Toledo is self described as serving Tapas, Steak, and Seafood. I ended up only ordering tapas and drinks both times I dined here. On my first visit, my mom and I weren’t too hungry and on my most recent visit, they were unable to serve us the special 50th Anniversary dish because it was technically the da
