Reese Witherspoon Coming to Planet Hollywood Observatory at Walt Disney World

We are excited to learn that Reese Witherspoon will be making an appearance at the Planet Hollywood Observatory in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World on Friday, March 17th.  She will be there with Robert Earl, the founder and CEO of Planet Hollywood, for the official ribbon cutting at the newly re-opened restaurant.  The event will take place at 6PM EST right outside of the restaurant location.  It will be a momentous occasion for guests in the area to be a part of.


The restaurant actually opened to guests for the first time in January for the soft opening, but this event will serve as the official opening.  Reese also isn’t the first celebrity to make an appearance at the resort.  Britney Spears was at the resort last week meeting and greeting with guests.  Guy Fieri, celebrity chef, is also the creator of the menu and a huge part of the newly re-imagined restaurant.  We hope that this becomes a new trend where we can expect to see more A-list celebrities make appearances at this popular restaurants that aims to recognize Hollywood glitz and glamour.

Have any of you dined at the restaurant since it re-opened?  Tell us what you think!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
