Planet Hollywood at Disney Springs is indeed stripping away its globe theme to become a turn-of-the-20th-century observatory, as has been rumored for some time. Planet Hollywood released the new artwork for the conversion this evening to media. The restaurant’s name is also changing to Planet Hollywood Observatory.

The restaurant will continue to feature movie and TV props, but the interior will be changed to a planetarium with stars and constellations on the ceiling above guests.

The remodel will be completed in 2016, but no word has given yet on when the work will commence.

Many establishments coming to Disney Springs are being modeled after shops and restaurants that would fill the space of abandoned businesses. Morimoto Asia will be in the Springs Bottling Co. building, while the Boathouse occupies a former waterside home (all in backstory of course, these are new or remodeled buildings from Downtown Disney).

That’s awesome! It would be really neat if guest could use the observatory (unless it’s just going to look like an observatory)

Is there a timeline for start of exterior or interior work?

That looks really nice. Far better than the existing building which, even though Downtown Disney had no coherent theme, was the only building there that looked completely out of place.

Definitely more modern and more sophisticated and yes I too hope the menu gets better. I’ll most likely also be at Morimoto’s.
