No strangers to glitz and glamor, Planet Hollywood knows how to make their guests feel like A-List celebrities with extraordinary service and dishes that feel like a personal chef created them just for you. I attended a fabulous event at the Planet Hollywood located in Disney Springs to taste and drink some of the amazing (and fun) food they offer Disney area guests.
My friendly server for the evening started me off with some beverages and their famous Supernova Shakes – which are no ordinary shakes. Topped with ice cream, cotton candy, chocolate bars, or even a whole slice of cake, these tasty treats are works of art! If adult beverages are calling your name, you will find no shortage of options. You could try There’s Something About Bloody Mary or get any of their signature cocktails in a souvenir light up Observatory Cup. I opted for an Eternal Sunshine, which was refreshing with Stoli Blueberi Vodka, lemonade, and fresh blueberry and basil. Yes, I would order it again, and
no you may not have a sip.
Appetizers followed shortly thereafter. The headliners were the High Roller appetizer sampler and the Chicken Crunch Basket, which featured -you guessed it- crunchy chicken strips with a honey mustard dipping sauce. My waistband may or may not have already been tested at this point, but the main course was still yet to come! Guy Fieri helped create the new menu with dishes such as the L.A. Lasagna and the Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheeseburger, which is a larger than life burger stuffed with a generous helping of mac ‘n’ cheese and served with triple fries.
If your Supernova Shake still hasn’t satisfied your sweet tooth, desserts are plentiful at Planet Hollywood! The Melting Planet was my favorite, because it was not only delicious, but it had a built in show to boot! As the “planet” melted, the contents were revealed: brownies and ice cream!
Other options included Star Jars, which came in three varieties: Banana Pudding, Brownie Cheesecake, and Key Lime Pie.
With its’ ginormous “movie” screen spanning across multiple stories of the inside of the dome and a DJ keeping the tracks flowing (including sing-a-long’s like YMCA and “Let It Go” that the entire restaurant participates in!) this probably isn’t where you would go for a quiet night out, but if you are looking for high energy fun with inventive dishes sure to satisfy even the largest of appetites, this is your place! Planet Hollywood Observatory is open from 11am to midnight daily.
