PICTORIAL: Splitsville Luxury Lanes soft opens at Downtown Disney, fantastic eats, retro treats

Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort finally has some interesting food variety now that Splitsville Luxury Lanes have opened. With burgers, sushi, pizzas, and more, the robust menu brings with it an explosion of new flavors to an otherwise very dated and tired dining lineup at the Disney shopping district. Oh, and there’s bowling, too!

Clearly, the component we’re most excited for with Splitsville is the food but there’s a lot to take in here. The overall space is a wonderful retro-inspired mid-century vibe, floor-to-ceiling windows bringing in lots of natural light, an expansive outdoor patio with nightly entertainment, two gigantic state-of-the-art kitchens, and 20 bowling lanes interspersed throughout various sections.

Gone is the concept of a mullet-style approach to a bowling alley (business in the front with lanes all in a row, party in the back with dining areas and more behind it) and instead the layout creates zones and areas that make the massive 40,000-square-foot, two-story, new space feel more inclusive and less overwhelming. On the first several sets of lanes feature no more than 2-4 lanes creating more intimate bowling experiences that should work quite well for parties and events.

Although the space has not officially grand opened, most of the features are now available. The second floor is still unavailable for now. Hours will likely vary (especially until the location is officially open) but, generally, you can expect Sunday – Thursday operation from 10:45 a.m.- midnight and Friday – Saturday operation from 10:45 a.m. – 1:00 a.m.

A wealth of variety means a lot of different condiment needs!

Ever since Yamabuki closed at the Paradise Pier Hotel, we’e been bereft of ANY sort of sushi options at Disneyland making its “happiest place on earth” tagline partially dubious. Splitsville however changes that bringing not just a sushi dish but an entire sushi section! FINALLY!!!

Fantasy Roll is a sushi dream come true with fresh salmon, cucumber, and avocado rolled in soy paper and topped with steamed shrimp and ahi tuna then drizzled with spicy kimchee ponzu sauce. It’s as tasty as it is pretty. $21.

Grilled Avocado filled with seared ahi tuna tossed in spicy kimchi ponzu sauce with scallions, spicy mayo, sushi rice, and crispy wonton chips. $18.

Ninja Crunch roll includes tempura fried salmon and Kani Kama krab rolled with fresh salmon and tempura crunch then drizzled with spicy mayo and eel sauce. $17.

Salmon Poke Bowl. Fresh deliciousness. You can watch them prepare the raw fish dishes in the kitchen via a big demo window. $26.

Southern Goddess salad has a really generous portion of yumm fried chicken, deviled eggs, heirloom tomatoes and avocado. YUM! $21.

Loaded Fries are smothered with queso blanco, bacon, ranch, and scallions. Not quite loaded and despite being quite salty we didn’t find these super flavor-loaded. However, with a side of ranch these were still satisfying. Probably not a MUST-TRY item, though. $15.

“Berry Lavender” comes with fresh strawberries and raspberries which are muddled with blackberry jam, lavender vodka, agave, and lemon juice. It is SO good! $14.

Royal Sangria includes Blackberry brandy, Pavo Real Red Wine, strawberries, orange juice, agave, and triple sec. $13.

Golden Road Mango Cart, $14. (No free refills ;))

Kitchen

There is a big demo window that lets you see into the downstairs kitchen. The sushi preparation happens right at the front and you can see into the massive beautiful work space.

Coke Freestyle machine bringing lots of soda options.
