The completely re-imagined Planet Hollywood Observatory is now open in Disney Springs, transforming its iconic globe into a four-story stargazing observatory with new spaces including an outdoor terrace and a new menu. The original restaurant closed a year ago in January 2016 and was supposed to open June of last year, but experienced delays in construction.
Each of the four floors of the newly redesigned venue offer different ambience and theming, including a 4,500-square-foot video wall the uses trompe l’oeil 3D technology that creates images that appear to be in three dimensions. As was the case with the previous Planet Hollywood, a focus is still on filmmaking memorabilia, which is on display throughout the venue.
A new menu is available, as well as some classic Planet Hollywood dishes that survived the revamp. The new menu includes a selection of over-the-top burgers and sandwiches by celebrity Chef Guy Fieri. Desserts like extravagant hand-dipped milkshakes are available as well. (See full menu here.)
The restaurant is now open daily for lunch and dinner. The new 5,000 square-foot Stargazers Lounge that will let guests relax under the stars will be opening soon (no date has been announced yet.) Stargazers Lounge will have a beverage menu that focuses on Florida craft beers (with 20 on tap) and 10 signature cocktails.
