Orlando's Walt Disney World Resort recently has introduced an array of new attractions that offer new event options for groups, Disney Destinations reported last week.
Among the new offerings:
• Test Track Presented by Chevrolet: Introduced early this month at Disney's Epcot Center, a new version of Test Track Presented by Chevrolet lets attendees create their own virtual auto concepts, then board "SimCar" ride vehicles to race through a series of performance tests.
"Test Track offers high-octane private event opportunities for groups of nearly any size," Disney explained in a news release. "With its themes of innovation, performance and creativity, it's easy to see how Test Track can reinforce important business messages for practically any organization."
• Splitsville: Opened Dec. 19 in Downtown Disney, Splitsville Luxury Lanes is an upscale, retro-style bowling venue that encompasses more than 50,000 square feet of entertainment space on two floors, including 30 bowling lanes, as well as billiards, live entertainment, a balcony bar and upscale dining options.
"Splitsville will offer numerous private-event options," according to Disney. "The venue's unique design lets smaller groups easily privatize an individual lane or a larger entertainment area. Groups of up to 800 can book the entire second floor, which includes 20 lanes, three billiard tables, three full bars, a dance floor and indoor and outdoor lounge areas. The entire Splitsville complex will be available for buy-outs of groups up to 1,500."
• Fantasyland: Opened on Dec. 6, Fantasyland is the largest expansion in the 41-year history of Magic Kingdom. Featuring fairytale-themed attractions, dining and shopping, "the new land is destined to be a favorite with attendees, especially those attending incentive programs or other family-friendly meetings," Disney said.
