More changes for Downtown Disney
Posted 12 July 2011 - 12:08 PM
Work continues on bringing our vision for Downtown Disney to life and we are excited to announce two experiences that will be coming to Downtown Disney over the coming months: Splitsville, a 50,000-square-foot upscale entertainment center that combines bowling with billiards, dining, music and nightlife; and Apricot Lane, a specialty retail store that offers celebrity-inspired branded apparel, affordable fashion jewelry, handbags and accessories.
Splitsville I would think will take over were Ridermakerz ( this is moving to Marketplace) is now and Apricot Lane where Harley Davidson used to be.

I am just not sure it was the best use of their money. Of course they are not using any real R&D money, or licensing so it probably was a relatively cheap investment.

Some new details have been announced here: http://www.insidethe...t-disney-world/
And after 8pm, guests are encouraged to wear evening attire as Splitsville turns to adult-oriented nightlife. In fact, other Splitsville locations require guests to be age 21 and up to enter after 8pm. It’s not yet clear whether this policy will continue at the Walt Disney World location, a traditional home of family-friendly entertainment.
“Over on Pleasure Island, we’ve completed removing some of the buildings that aren’t part of our future plans. During the course of this site work, we identified opportunities to further refine our master plan and are pausing to evaluate them. What does this mean for you? While we’re moving quickly, it will admittedly cause a delay in construction. But we’re willing to bet that any delay will be worth the wait once we’re able to share details about the exciting work we’ve been doing.”
Construction on Splitsville will begin this fall with no opening date set.
Although I doubt this will be a 21 and up venue, I do see this as something that will make a huge impact on traffic.
