Disney Springs’ Planet Hollywood announces layoffs for 468 employees

Planet Hollywood at Disney Springs will be laying off 468 employees by January 19. The restaurant is closing for six months to renovate as part of a redesign in the changeover from Downtown Disney to Disney Springs; it is expected to reopen in June 2016. The building will be renovated to resemble an astronomy observatory to fit in with the Disney Springs’ storyline of being a turn-of-the-century waterfront town.   The redesign will include a new menu and experience for the customers, including a DJ playing music in the dining rooms. An outdoor terrace and bar area, called Stargazers, will offer live entertainment. The laid-off employees will have first shot at being rehired when the restaurant is ready to reopen.
