Splitsville makes bowling a great rainy day activity at Downtown Disney

If you happen to come to Orlando, Florida during the summer, you may want to find some indoor activities during our normal afternoon shower.

One great way to avoid the rain is by stepping back into Memory Lane.  Splitsville opened in 2012, but someday we'll be stepping back into Memory Lane as we remember when this was called "Downtown Disney, West Side."  Disney has announced they plan to change the name to "Disney Springs" sometime in the future.

Once you get inside, you'll notice the extra-special FLORIDA feel with hand-painted murals and 30 luxury lanes, located on 2 floors.  Bowling prices don't go by the game here, but by the hour.  And it also gives you a bit of extra time if you have more people in your party.  For example 4 people get 1 hour & 15 minutes...and it counts extra time for each person up to 8.

Current pricing was $15 per person/per hour M-F 10:30a-4p.  $20 per person/hour M-F 4p-close & all day on weekends at the $20 price.

Billiard tables are $10 per table per hour.  

Some of the dining options include a Sushi Bar and a regular bar.  The Sushi Bar has been very popular and I have heard locals say to go bowl there "for the sushi."  
You can also check out the Freestyle soda machine that will allow you to have over 100 drink choices.  You can get a souvenir cup for $6.95 currently and have free refills during your visit.  One really great place to relax is upstairs, just outside the bar to get a great view of Downtown Disney (and it's covered during those afternoon storms).  During peak times, you may catch live musicians outside in the dining area.  

You can bring a special souvenir home by getting a bowling ball with Disney characters on it to make your game more magical no matter where you bowl.

As you head out of Splitsville, you should make a right and go down the side of the building toward the parking lot so you can look in the window to see the "Hardest working pinsetters in the world.  It's fun to watch through the glass from an angle that you may have never seen before.
