LP Lotion: Splitsville Luxury Lanes Previewed at Downtown Disney Westside
Page 1 of 10
The latest trend in boutique bowling is rolling into Downtown Disney with the December 19, 2012 opening of Splitsville Luxury Lanes. The upscale, retro-style bowling venue will be the largest in the bowling brand’s fleet and joins other fun, family-friendly entertainment options at Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World Resort.
Splitsville at Downtown Disney is the bowling brand’s only two-level location with 30 lanes (10 downstairs and 20 upstairs) and more than 50,000 square feet of entertainment space – twice the size of any other Splitsville – featuring billiards, live entertainment, a balcony bar with sweeping views and upscale dining options that cater to the entire family. Automatic gutter bumpers are even for the littlest ones.
The Splitsville concept is anchored by bowling – the largest participation sport in America – but with a modern take that brings together entertainment and upscale food in a non-traditional bowling setting. For instance, the décor is a blend of hip and nostalgic elements with the bowling lanes separated into clusters that create unexpected sight lines for guests. There are also lane concierges available nightly to help maximize the bowling experience for guests.
The Splitsville menu is distinctly different than your typical bowling alley fare. Guided by award-winning chef Tim Cushman, the menu features a variety of higher-end offerings such as grilled Mahi Mahi with “Voodoo” shrimp ($24), filet sliders ($14), grilled chicken parmesan ($21), fresh-rolled sushi from one of two shusi bars ($11-$15) plus various pizzas ($13-$16), burgers, salads, sandwiches and desserts. And, of course, a kids menu.
Unlike other Splitsville locations, there will not be a dress code at Downtown Disney. It will also be completely open to all ages at all times except Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights (starting around 10-10:30p.m.) when it will switch to 21 and over on the upper level only. Thursday nights will also be Cast Member nights with special rates for Disney cast members and others working on Disney property.
