Splitsville?

It was supposed to open today. Just wondering if it did and if anyone has tried it? I'm trying to find the cost...I think I read somewhere it is not per game but per lane. Looking for cost, how many people, shoe rental, etc.

Thank you!

Im excited to try it out, we might go this weeknd.

We have something similar here called Kings which is a big bowling alley with food, drinks etc. I just think Splitsville is going to be the same but on a larger scale.

I think I already know the answer but can anyone confirm if splitsville accepts the Disney gift card?

I would say that they don't accept Disney gift cards or Disney visa reward dollars, as it is a chain not owned by Disney.

I am really struggling hard to see what the appeal of Splitsville is beyond a rainy day activity (although I am glad to see an empty building filled)? I just feel like I must be missing something

Just remember that DTD is not strictly for WDW guests - it is open to the public as an entertainment complex so it makes sense that they open.

Besides, our flight in January arrives at MCO at 3:40 and by the time ME gets us to our resort and we get checked in, DTD is realistically the only option for us and its always nice to have things to do besides eating and shopping......

I don't understand your "struggle."

I don't see why anyone stays at the GF, but I don't really "struggle" over it.

I don't like Hoop De Doo, but, I'm not going to tell someone that likes it that's it's really a 'struggle' to understand what they might like about it.

Now, I guess I don't understand.

Jeesh, cranky much

If you must know, I am simply "struggling" to figure out what the appeal for this venue will be long term. I can't imagine many people going to Disney World and wanting to bowl. I can see it as being a great rainy day activity and something extra for the locals, but will that be enough to sustain it long term

I guess I am "struggling" to understand the business model behind it. I am sure it will be a nice place, but I still don't quite understand what someone would get out of the experience to pay that kind of premium to do it? I can comprehend why people may or may not perceive value out of the Grand Floridian versus an Allstar or Victoria and Alberts vs a Rainforest Cafe (not that I may necessarily agree with them but I can understand why they might feel one way or another) but I guess I just don't know enough about Splitsville to understand what a "premium" bowling alley is. KWIM?

Sorry, but I can bowl at home. No way I'm spending hard-earned vacation time in a bowling alley, Disney or not. Wonder if it comes complete with sweaty guys eating nachos off of their chests.
