Walt Disney World’s Planet Hollywood Observatory Open After Inspections

The opening of Planet Hollywood Observatory at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World has been a much anticipated event.  We are now hearing reports that there have been inspections taking place at the restaurant earlier this morning.  It appears those inspections went well, as Disney Parks Blog has stated that the restaurant is open and posted photos of Guy Fieri in the new location.


This location was originally a Planet Hollywood location in Downtown Disney (now Disney Springs).  It closed last year for a this lengthy refurbishment to update the restaurant and re-theme it as the Planet Hollywood Observatory.  The menu was also completely re-done and created by celebrity Chef Guy Fieri.  Disney Parks Blog described the restaurant as, “Inside it’s an immersive theatrical dining experience, with each floor providing a different ambience, including the fabulous curated collection of film-making memorabilia and a 4,500-square-foot video wall the uses trompe l’oeil 3D technology – images with such realism that they appear to be in three dimensions.”

We can’t wait for this one to finally open and taste the delicious new menu!

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!
