is opening soon at the West Side area of Disney Springs!
Planet Hollywood Observatory
And while we don’t yet know the opening date, we do know a few things. For instance, the refurbished restaurant (formerly Planet Hollywood – the “Observatory” part will be unique to Disney Springs) will offer four floors as well as outdoor dining, along with a 4,000 square foot video wall, live entertainment, and the Stargazers bar.
The location also shared that they have partnered with Food Network’s Guy Fieri in creating an exclusive Burger and Sandwich menu for the location. Other new dishes as well as Planet Hollywood favorites will also be available.
And now we know one more thing… Planet Hollywood Observatory will be serving some over-the-top ice cream creations in the form of some super-loaded Supernova Shakes.
Take a look!
That right there — starting from the left — appears to be a Strawberry Shake topped with a river of white chocolate and sprinkles. Oh, AND an entire slice of cake! The Chocolate Shake seems to include a whole smorgasbord of candies like mini peanut butter cups, mini M&Ms, and chocolate-covered malt balls while garnishing with a Kit Kat, a wafer straw, and a BROWNIE. If that last shake on the right is Cotton Candy, it’s complemented with gumdrops and chocolate-dipped pretzels, then topped with whipped cream, cotton candy, and a big swirly lollipop.
I think a bit of sugar shock kicked in just while writing that paragraph 😉 .
Now, while these shakes are certainly eye-catching, we have spotted similar items before. In fact, these “super-loaded” shakes seem to be a trend in casual restaurant dining at the moment. The upcoming Paddlefish restaurant (also slated to open later this fall) has been providing sneak peeks of their newest creations via their social media accounts. One of the new menu items they’ve shared are shakes that, while not quite as bold as the Supernovas, definitely have some plentiful toppings involved and were also previewed in a similar mason jar serving style.
And we’ve heard tell of similar goodies at The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen, the new Willy Wonka-esque restaurant at Universal Studios.
So, hey, if super-loaded Shakes are the latest trend, I think I’m ALL for it! I’ll be sure to grab an extra spoon (and fork. AND knife!) in case anyone out there is willing to go halfsies with me 😉 .
