Those in the know will already be aware of the planned refurbishment for Planet Hollywood that is due to be occurring as part of the Downtown Disney/Disney Springs transformation.

Planet Hollywood Obsevatory concept art
Now the concept art has been available to see for a couple of months already but now Disney have actually placed it on property at Downtown Disney for guests to take a look at.

While completion of this project isn’t due to happen until sometime in 2016, work on the exterior of the restaurant is likely due to begin later in the year with the restaurant expected to close sometime in early in 2016.

Planet Hollywood Observatory is to be styled on a turn of the century observatory and will feature four floors including an outdoor terraced bar called Stargazers which will give guests fantastic views of the completed Disney Springs. This ties in with the plans for the Town Center designs that I talked about recently.

On top of this the restaurant will feature a fully re-worked menu as well as bringing live entertainment to Planet Hollywood on a regular basis. Although the interior is going to be redesigned, Disney has promised that movie and celebrity memorabilia will remain a part of the restaurant.
