Out and About: King’s Bowl Orlando Debuts New Menu Items

I was recently invited by King’s Bowl Orlando to check out their new menu items, and enjoy a little bowling.

King's Bowl Orlando - bowling lanes

Whatever you think bowling alley food is, it’s not King’s Bowl. Yes, the menu has hamburgers, but it has so much more, and really good quality, too.

The new menu items, added to the Orlando location on June 3, ran the gamut from salads to sandwiches to full entrees.

Splitsville Luxury Lanes in Orlando to Host Clean The World Super Bowling Party on February 3

splitsville01One of the newest tenants at Downtown Disney is Splitsville Luxury Lanes, and on February 3, they’re holding a “Clean The World Super Bowling Party” to celebrate the Super Bowl.

Admission, which includes complimentary appetizers, a buffet, and open bar from 6pm to 9pm, is $75 per person (21 and older only). Open bowling is an additional $20. Buy tickets online to reserve your spot.

Splitsville has 40 flat-panel TV screens for game watching, along with three full bars.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to the Orlando-based Clean The World Foundation. This nonprofit organization collects and recycles soap and shampoo products from the hospitality industry and distributes them to impoverished communities worldwide.

Splitsville is located at Downtown Disney’s West Side, between the AMC theaters and DisneyQuest (in the building that formerly held the Virgin Megastore).

Splitsville Luxury Lanes to Open at Downtown Disney West Side on December 19

The newest attraction at Walt Disney World’s Downtown Disney West Side is Splitsville Luxury Lanes. It was christened by a media event on December 7, but officially opens to guests on December 19.

The two-level entertainment venue, the largest in Splitsville’s chain, features 30 lanes and 50,000 square feet of entertainment geared towards families. In addition to bowling, guests can enjoy billiards, live entertainment, and a balcony bar with views of Downtown Disney.

There is also a menu with upscale versions of burgers, sandwiches, salads, and appetizers. Most everything falls within the $7-$12 range, save for a few entrees in the $18-$24 range. There is also a kid’s menu.

Bowling rates are $15/person for 1 1/2 hours of bowling and shoes from 10am-5pm; $20/person for the same from 5pm-10pm; and back to $15/person from 10pm-2am. They do accept Disney Dining Plan and Keys to the World.

The building formerly held the Virgin Megastore, but has been completely redone so that not much remains of the former tenant.

A Look at Splitsville Coming to Downtown Disney This Fall

This fall, an entertainment venue, Splitsville, will open at Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World.

Located in the two-story building that once held the Virgin Megastore, Splitsville will have 30 bowling lanes, billards tables and live entertainment. They will also have a second floor outdoor seating area and will serve food and beverages.

Last week, the official Disney blog released artist renderings of the renovated exterior and interior.

One of them shows the main floor entrance by the escalators. From the looks of it, one of the biggest differences is that the ceiling has been filled in.

When Virgin occupied the building, this section of ceiling was mainly catwalks that circled the building on the second floor. If you stood at the bottom of the escalators and looked up, you could see all the way up to the third floor ceiling.

Another shows the second floor near the escalators and it looks like interior walls have been removed to open up the area.

This location will be the largest of Splitsville’s five locations, with 50,000 square feet between the two floors of entertainment.

Here are those artist renderings (courtesy of Disney) for you to check out:
