Boutique bowling Centers are the most popular entertainment trend across the USA right now. Splitsville Luxury Lanes in Downtown Disney has become a top hot spot in its first 2 years. King’s Bowling offers a similar experience on International Drive at I-Drive Live.
Splitsville offers bowling but some of it’s best customers will never bowl. It isn’t that they do not like bowling, it’s that they like going to the restaurant or bar and socializing more than bowling. Splitsville has live entertainment daily and when the weather is nice, You can sit outside and hear some really good artist.
Downtown Disney will become Disney Springs at some point, most likely when all the renovations are complete in 2015. A parking garage will be complete sometime in 2014 to alleviate the major parking problem that has caused headaches for years.
The Shopping, dining and entertainment complex is reachable by Disney Transportation from Your on-sight Disney Hotel and Downtown Disney Hotels. It is always a good idea to use the Disney transportation when staying at these hotels to avoid the parking problems and also in case You might want to enjoy a few adult beverages while at the complex.

Or it might be kept in the family and every year it is taken out and the whole family can remember the trip to Disney. Some families collect items each year and build up a collection slowly, but some get a little of everything and do it all in one shopping trip.
