Two Restaurants Expand as Downtown Disney Evolves Into Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort


The Disney Parks Blog revealed that the changes to Planet Hollywood are expected to be completed in Spring 2016, while the expansion of Paradiso 37 should be completed in Summer 2015.

At Paradiso 37, the seating area is expected to nearly double when the expansion is complete. The restaurant remains open during the expansion.

At Planet Hollywood, a larger scale transformation is taking place. It is changing into a four-story stargazing observatory to match the design of Disney Springs. The new interior will feature spherical, planet-shaped lighting fixtures and stylish finishings. The movie star memorabilia will remain as guests will, “Dine Amongst the Stars.”

A new outdoor terrace and bar called Stargazers is also being added. The menu is expected to be updated, while maintaining old favorites.
