Looking for good eats and a striking time?  Check out Splitsville Luxury Lanes at Disney Springs and get your family game on!  Not your everyday bowling alley.  With a mix of retro vibes and classy dining; Splitsville is redefining this popular sport.   Grab your ball and let’s get rollin’.

Too Cute!!! Minnie and Mickey Bowling Balls!!!!

 

It is recommended to reserve your lanes 24 hours in advance, especially if you have a large group.  Spare me…Splitsville does offer walk in pricing, but this is not a guarantee. Lane usage is based on your party size to maximize your game and you will be pleased to know the shoe rental and bumpers are included.

Upon arrival you will check in at the front desk where you will provide names and shoes

sizes for all bowlers.  Make sure to inform the cast member of any bowlers that would like to use bumpers.  This information will be saved to their bowling profile.  During the game the bumpers will set when the bowler’s profile requires them and drop when not needed.  This is super cool!  Everyone can bowl on the same lane and are accommodated as needed.  Your shoes will then be placed in a basket  and a cast member will guide your party to the assigned lane for your game.  Take caution:  the game time will already be ticking away so you may want to be fast on your feet and get your game shoes on.

Got the munchies?  Splitsville is home to some of the most tantalizing “Alley Food” known to mankind.  The unique menu offered is a blend of traditional and upscale offerings that will send your taste buds spinning.  A few of my menu favorites include:

 tangy California Crunch

 and the Meat Lover’s Pizza all served fresh to your family lane.   That’s right ya’ll…this ain’t your momma’s bowling alley!   Don’t forget to get your drink on!  Drink to your heaven’s content…I recommend the slushie in a souvenir cup!

My family and I had a fabulous time!  There is so much family friendly fun going on it is hard not to.  The staff is incredibly warmhearted and works hard to deliver the Disney Magic.  It is just an awesome place to kick back and relax while getting a friendly game on.  Thank you Splitsville for your hospitality and inviting our family to roll with ya!

Disney Bounding- Sadness

sadnesssmiles

Smile Pretties! It is Friday and I am feeling fabulous and wish you love and happiness for your weekend adventures!  If you are in the Orlando area you may want to find Adventure at Disney Springs for the Road to the Races tour where you can see Lightning McQueen and other Cars 3 stars.  This event is scheduled through Sunday.  Don’t worry if you are not able to attend you can still enjoy the event!!! I will go live on my Instagram this weekend while attending the event found on the Marketplace side.  If you are following me on Instagram  you will receive a notification when I go live and if you are not following me @forkandspoonley you really should hit that follow button.  I will try to do more live feeds from the parks and when we are out and about as much as I can.  If you would like more information about the Road to the Races tour you can find it here:  Cars3tour.  The tour is kicking off here in Orlando and making it’s way around the USA!

So, today I wanted to share with you a Disney Bounding look I put together for one of my favorite characters from Pixar’s movie INSIDE OUT.  There is just so much to love about her.   I just want to hug her and turn her blue into a new hue.  SADNESS!

So here I am with @JulietTheFirst as “Joy and Sadness” as we took over headquarters.  This was truly an emotional day.

Disney Bounding is tons of fun and acquires a lot of attention from cast members, characters, and other guests.  Overall it adds to the magic of the day!  So to complete this look you will need a blue wig, large-black circle glasses, blue dress with Peter Pan collar, nude colored flats, and blue lace peek a boo socks.

You can find the wig and dress on Amazon.  To keep within the Disney Guidlines for dressing up in the park I chose to wear the dress vs the sweater and pants look that Sadness rocks so well.  Simply because the wig and glasses really made the look.

 

Do you Disney Bound?  Share your Dressed in Disney looks below!!!  I would love some new inspiration.  Also, if you would like to see me Disney Bound as a specific character around the parks post your suggestion in the comments.

Sweet Treats: Sprinkles at Disney Springs

logo

 

Disney Springs just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter, and with the opening of Sprinkles Cupcakes last spring this Disney hot spot can’t be beat.  If you haven’t heard of Sprinkles cupcakes you may just be living under a rock.  Sprinkles is home to the world’s first cupcake ATM and has grown to 20 store’s worldwide.  AND is….disney-2x

Sprinkles Cupcakes serves only the finest ingredients; meaning no artificial flavors or preservatives are used.   Your taste buds are guaranteed freshness and extra sweet baked into every cupcake.  Between the ATM and the store they bake and frost nearly 2,000 cupcakes a day!  dscn0076

With this much natural sugar shock going on I had to give in to my craving.  I met up with Jodi, the General Manager at Sprinkles at Disney Springs to get the inside scoop and learn some super cool facts about CUPCAKES!

Jodi has worked at the Sprinkles in LA, Beverly Hills, and Las Vegas  before coming to Florida.  She has been with the Disney Springs bakery since it opened May 2016.  So of course she has seen and experienced a lot in the cupcake world.  When asked what makes Sprinkldscn9934es so different from other bakeries, she replied, “Sprinkles is like a ride. Because you come in and see the cupcakes being made and be a part of the process itself.”  Guests can view cupcakes being frosted through out the day up until closing.  Using a unique frosting technique called the Sprinkles swirl, cupcakes are frosted  all around and finished with a final swirl.   dscn9970

Almost everything is made in-house. For example, the cream cheese whipped cream featured in the Red Velvet Mocha is made in several batches throughout the day.  **Fun Fact** Red velvet is their most popular and signature flavor.  And did you know you can say anything with cupcakes?  Have any message or hashtag spelled out on cupcakes!

“We’ve had message boxes that ask “Will you marry me?  My favorite messages are those for weddings or ones with bridal shower hashtags.” (Jodi, 2017)  Sharing happy messages with special humans is just too sweet with Sprinkles Cupcakes. This is by far the most joyful cupcake I have ever seen.   They are also the best cupcake I have ever tasted.  Sprinkle’s cupcakes are so moist that they melt in your mouth and they go great with a sweet cup of coffee.  My favorite combination is a Red Velvet Cupcake and the Red Velvet Mocha.  Other specialty drinks are available.

Get your cupcake on at Sprinkles Disney Springs between 10am and midnight Monday-Sunday!  For after hours treats and sweets check out the Cupcake ATM located just outside the bakery.

While there is only one Cupcake ATM currently at Disney Springs, Jodi hinted towards the franchise’s expansion and their hopes to add a second soon.

My visit to Sprinkles is just a few months shy of their one year anniversary.  I can’t wait to find out how they will celebrate!  Til then join the Sprinkles Perks program to earn free cupcakes!!!  Thank you, Jodi for the opportunity to experience Sprinkles and the world’s greatest cupcake with my family!
