Planet Hollywood Closing – Opening a Hotel at I-Drive Live

Planet Hollywood Closing

Lots of rumors have been flying around about the future of Downtown Disney staple “Planet Hollywood”. The new mock up images that have surfaced of “Disney Springs” looks to redo the famous planet structure and replace it with something else, but no statements from either side have been released to inform us whether or not the restaurant would be staying.

We can say that we have heard from sources that Planet Hollywood will be relocating from Downtown Disney’s West Side to the new I-Drive Live development located off Disney property on International Drive. As we’ve previously reported I-Drive Live is currently under construction at the old Mercado location and is rumored to feature a London-Eye-like ferris wheel, aquarium and museums. Planet Hollywood would not only have a restaurant, but also a themed hotel on the property. I personally think this is a great idea for International Drive as there are very few themed hotels in the area. I’ve always wondered why the famous stretch didn’t mirror the Los Vegas strip with over-the-top themed hotels that are truly an attraction in their own right.
