Planet Hollywood will look toward a new set of stars, transforming its Orlando flagship location into a four-story stargazing observatory set to debut in spring 2016.
The reimagined Planet Hollywood Observatory is centrally located and will overlook the heart of Downtown Disney with a newly expanded outdoor terrace and bar. Within the entertainment emporium, patrons of all ages are invited to “Dine Amongst the Stars” through a refreshed, yet timeless menu, distinctive outdoor bar and lounge options, an imaginative new merchandise line, and a host of all-star celebrity partnerships.
The Observatory’s exterior will share the Disney Springs turn-of-the-century design aesthetic, while the interior’s refurbished upholstery, spherical planet-shaped lighting fixtures, and stylish finishing will create a welcoming atmosphere for fans to celebrate a new generation of superstar entertainers. New dining and lounge options will include an outdoor terrace and bar space called Stargazers, which will feature live entertainment, while music in the main dining room will be energized by DJ performances. Walls and glass displays throughout the massive space will be adorned with imagery and memorabilia from various movies, paying homage to a long tradition of filmmaking and recognizing beloved newcomers.
Refreshed dining options will highlight Planet Hollywood’s timeless classics and introduce a host of updated additions. A curated beverage program will feature a variety of milkshakes, smoothies, wines, and bottled and draft beers, as well as cocktails served in specialty glassware to cater to the needs of all guests, from groups with small children to young adults and seniors. Spacious dining rooms ensure comfort for family meals, while various bar spaces set the mood for a perfect date.
Construction is set to begin in early January 2016 and be finished by spring 2016.
