From the moment you ascend the staircase at Planet Hollywood Disneyland Paris you know you’re in for a treat. It screams drama, theatricality, entertainment – lights, camera, action!
Access to Planet Hollywood and all the other restaurants in the huge food court at Disneyland Paris is free. You don’t have to buy tickets or go in the park. This makes it a really popular option not just with park goers but with locals and even Parisians who take the approximately 45 minute journey to the Marne-la-Vallée/Chessy, a two minute walk from the Disneyland Park.
If you’re visiting the park you can simply nip in and out to eat at the restaurants and there’s a wider choice here than there is inside so it’s a popular option (just don’t lose your ticket when you come out).
One of the most popular events at the Disneyland Park is the nightly fireworks show. It doesn’t though start until late. That means keeping the kids, and you, amused until its dark and the show is ready to go live. This can be as late as 23h in the summer months and rides will be closed by then.
One way to keep everyone entertained is at Planet Hollywood. It’s the perfect end to the day after you’ve been on your feet, walking from one part of the park to another – it’s huge.
For that last bit of Disney fun you’ll need to recharge your batteries and replenish your resources. Kids will need to be distracted after a long day. The sound and light show and the fireworks at the Castle of Sleeping Beauty is well worth the wait, it’s an extravagant extravaganza with bells and whistles galore.
Perfect for pirates, princesses and parents!
Planet Hollywood is colourful, vibrant, fun and noisy but without being too loud. Little princesses and pirates will love the vibrant lights and buzzing ambience; grown ups love the all-American menu and the familiar Planet Hollywood character.
You’ll find a terrific choice of American classics like burgers, ribs, key lime pie, milkshakes. The staff are great and know how to cheer up tired children, a set of pencils and some pictures to colour in help. Our server, Matthew was brilliant and had all of his tables laughing and having fun. Typical of the cosmopolitan staff here, he loves his job and it shows. There’s always someone celebrating a birthday and the whole place joins in singing to them which gives it a bit of a party atmosphere.
As with the rest of the Planet Hollywood restaurant Franchise (backers are Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone), there are lots of Hollywood hints; from life size statues of the stars to costumes, Mel Gibson’s motor bike and a whole load of other celebrity bits and pieces.
There are two levels, lots of seating, but book in advance if you can to make sure you get a table when you want it, as Planet Hollywood at Disneyland Paris is very popular. Simply stop by when you reach the park and book your table for when you want it later.
After your evening meal, take a short stroll down Main Street and perch up for the fireworks and sound and light show – it’s fabulous!
