Planet Hollywood, whose casual theme celebrates the entertainment industry, is transforming its Orlando flagship location into a four-story stargazing observatory.
Set to open in spring 2016, the reimagined Planet Hollywood Observatory will overlook the heart of Downtown Disney, where guests can "dine amongst the stars" and enjoy a refreshed menu, outdoor bar and lounge options, a new merchandise line and all-star celebrity partnerships.
Intensive renovations and artistic treatments, spearheaded by Elkus Manfredi Architects, will take place early next year and will align Planet Hollywood Observatory with the transformation of Downtown Disney into Disney Springs, offering dining, shopping and entertainment amid open-air promenades.
The Observatory's exterior will share the Disney Springs turn-of-the-century design aesthetic, while the interior will be refreshed with new upholstery and updated finishes, and signature features such as spherical, planet-shaped light fixtures. A new outdoor terrace and bar space, called Stargazers, will feature live entertainment while music in the main dining room will feature DJ performances. Walls and glass displays throughout the restaurant space will be adorned with movie imagery and memorabilia.
