Planet Hollywood Observatory is Serving Up Big Flavor in Orlando
Planet Hollywood Observatory is now open at Disney Springs, serving up a new menu with concepts by celebrity chef Guy Fieri. The long-time tourist hotspot is revamped from the inside out: past visitors will have trouble recognizing the popular Disney Springs landmark, other than the original Globe concept.

Bright lights, music videos, cool visuals, and popular film props adorn the open-concept, 3-level interior of the famous Planet Hollywood globe. And while the structure and decor are intriguing, it is the new menu that is sure to wow visitors and locals alike. While certain classics still remain, new dining options from Guy Fieri have been added, along with a beverage menu containing handcrafted cocktails and Florida craft beers.
The High Roller Platter, a selection of the most popular appetizers.
The High Roller Platter – an appetizer sampler served on a whimsical Ferris Wheel display – is an extremely popular item, containing the World Famous Chicken Crunch among other starter favorites. The Texas Tostadas are another noteworthy appetizer.

When it came time to choose entrees, I opted for the Bacon Mac-N-Cheese Burger. Massive and delicious, the self-proclaimed “Mayor of Flavortown” outdid himself on this one. The Turkey Pic-A-Nic was a bit of a lighter option, though still massive – loaded with fresh turkey, Swiss, and even BBQ potato chips. Perhaps our favorite “food visual” came in the form of the BBQ Ribs – served on a picnic table! The fall-off-the-bone ribs were tasty alone, but the display really made the meal.

The Chocolate Comet Milkshake and “Planet Meltdown”.
Kids and adults alike will relish Planet Hollywood Observatory’s dessert options. The Planet Meltdown, served as a globe, is delivered to the table in one piece – and then melted with steaming chocolate sauce, revealing a fudge cake interior.
Planet Hollywood Observatory is open until 1AM during the week and 2AM on the weekends, and is located at Disney Springs, 1506 East Buena Vista Drive, Orlando, FL.
