As Downtown Disney undergoes a transformation to become Disney Springs, word comes that the centerpiece Planet Hollywood will also be undergoing a transformation.

Planet Hollywood will revamp its Orlando flagship location into a four-story building called Planet Hollywood Observatory.

The Observatory’s exterior will share the Disney Springs turn-of-the-century design aesthetic, while the interior’s refurbished upholstery, spherical planet-shaped lighting fixtures, and glass displays filled with movie memorabilia will create a fun and welcoming atmosphere for guests. The interior will resemble a high-tech planetarium with stars and constellations. It also looks like they’ll get rid of those multi-level stairs that lead to the entrance.

New dining and lounge options will include a new outdoor terrace and outdoor bar space called Stargazers, which will feature live entertainment while music in the main dining room will be energized by DJ performances.

The menu will highlight Planet Hollywood favorites, plus include new offerings to be announced closer to opening. Plans are for the company to bring in a few celebrity chefs to help create the new menu.

“We’re thrilled to be a part of Disney Springs and transform our brand as Disney evolves its exciting new venue,” said Planet Hollywood International Founder and Chairman Robert Earl. “With Planet Hollywood Observatory, we are refreshing our dining experience as we renew our commitment to the new, rising stars of the entertainment industry — a part of our core mission since inception.”

Planet Hollywood Observatory will debut Spring 2016 at Walt Disney World.
