Walt Disney World Files Permits for Quick Service Addition to Planet Hollywood Observatory

Credit: Disney

The Planet Hollywood Observatory is a restaurant in Disney Springs where you get to dine among the stars.  It is located in the Town Center area of Disney Springs within a huge globe structure that you can’t miss.  The restaurant is a table service location with a menu that was created by celebrity chef, Guy Fierri, and others. It looks like the restaurant location will be expanding in order to add a quick service option for guests who don’t have time to enjoy a longer, sit down style service.  Walt Disney Parks and Resort has officially filed the necessary permits with Orange County for the new addition.


The permit describes the work as a “Quick Serve Restaurant.”  The permit also goes on to stay the following about the work and how it will be completed as, “Interior alteration for a new restaurant within an existing restaurant.”  Also, based on the permit, it looks like Disney would have a year to complete the work.  We don’t have any dates yet for when we can expect the work on new quick service area of the restaurant to begin or, more importantly, when we can expect the location to officially open to guests.

The opening of quick service versions of popular restaurants has become a popular trend at Walt Disney World, particularly in Disney Springs. So, we aren’t surprised to learn that Disney would move forward with an addition like this.

What do you all think about a Planet Hollywood quick service option?

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!
