Over the past few months, Disney have drip fed us elements of the Downtown Disney makeover. So far we have had new grass, shops and dining but this could be the biggest development yet. According to the Disney Parks Blog, Splitsville is coming to Downtown Disney Westside on the former Virgin Megastore site. The Parks blog have released this photo

The blog also states:

“This fall, construction will begin on Splitsville, a 50,000-square-foot upscale entertainment center that combines bowling with billiards, dining, music and nightlife. To make way for this experience, RIDEMAKERZ, currently located on the West Side, will move to the Marketplace.

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.”

What do you think? Is it something that Downtown Disney is lacking. People have always said that there is little other than shopping and dining outside of the parks in the evening. Do you think this is going to become a popular option?
