Planet Hollywood Observatory reopens with a new look Terry Roen 01/30/2017 Our Fun 1 The iconic globe-shaped restaurant in Disney Village has reopened after a $25 million renovation. Planet Hollywood Observatory has transformed into a four-story stargazing observatory with a new menu and theatrical dining theme. A 4,500-square-foot video wall with 3D technology displays images from more than 20 projectors. The restaurant’s Friday opening was postponed several times because of construction delays. The 22-year-old restaurant closed in January 2016. It originally planned to reopen in June 2016, then in December. The new menu includes classic Planet Hollywood dishes along with a selection of over-the-top burgers like the Bacon Mac-N-Cheese with applewood smoked bacon, six cheese mac-n-cheese, onion straws and donkey sauce created by celebrity Chef Guy Fieri. The 5,000 square-foot Stargazers Lounge on the fourth floor will open at a later date. The first Planet Hollywood opened in New York in 1991 and grew to include 100 locations worldwide. The company has gone bankrupt twice, leaving only nine restaurants that remain open. One Response Diving Zenobia 01/10/2020 Well done to the author. A excellent post.
