PHOTO - Disney Springs Planet Hollywood Observatory concept art

Jun 04, 2015 in "Planet Hollywood Observatory"

Posted: Thursday June 4, 2015 1:07pm EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

This piece of concept art on display at Disney Springs gives a glimpse of the new-look Planet Hollywood Observatory set to open next year.


Opening in Spring 2016, Planet Hollywood Observatory will be a complete rework of the existing restaurant. Taking design cues from a turn-of-the-century observatory, the four story building will also feature a new outdoor terrace and bar called Stargazers. The outdoor terrace will give guests views out onto Disney Springs and will also bring live entertainment to Planet Hollywood.

On the inside, there will be a completely reworked menu, and a new interior design - but still retaining the movie props and celebrity memorabilia that the restaurant is known for. 

The restaurant is currently still open and operating as normal, with the work expected to begin on the exterior changes later this year. Early 2016 should see the beginning of the interior work, which is likely to see a closure of the restaurant.

There is only one reason to eat at PH, captain Crunch chicken.

Looks like you nailed it!

Have they announced an opening yet? Any updates on construction? I will be there at the end of August and would've liked to try it... but that ain't happening I guess... and will this be the '"Chicken Guy' QS restaurant I've been reading about? it seems they have been interviewing/hiring staff since the end of June...

There will always be people who gravitate towards the known and familiar. When my parents go with us to WDW, each trip I make them try one or two new restaurants. Otherwise they settle into the same ADR's each time. Some people could have the choice between a five star restaurant and a McDonalds and pick the Happy Meal.

How many chain restaurants does Disney Springs need anyway? They were fine earlier now but now that Disney's upped their game culinary-wise, it seems odd that there's still these holdouts restaurants.

While not a huge fan of PH, I do like their Burger from Guy. They are superior to D-Luxe. I have notice there is a bunch of unused space on the first floor exterior as you walk towards the covered area of Town Center. I wonder if this will be where the new quick service will be incorporated into? Edit: Just saw the construction. yes, this is exactly the area I was thinking. Good. It always looked like a vacated strip mall spot.

Wonder if this was something that had always been planned as a phase two after they got the major referb well out of the way or if they're responding to the obvious demand for more options in the area and finding use for the existing space they already have for that.

"It would help if you read the title of the picture article KB..." Sorry! I had a blonde moment. They happen once in a while.

I don't care as long as it has my captain crunch chicken. :hungry:

Wait. What does this mean exactly? I'm kind of confused. "Although Planet Hollywood has yet to make a formal announcement, plans were filed late February 2018 for an "Interior alteration for a new restaurant within an existing restaurant." Is this going to be another bar?
