Planet Hollywood said on Twitter: “The time has come to officially announce that after more than a quarter of a century as an iconic landmark in The Village at Disneyland Paris, the Planet Hollywood restaurant will be permanently closing its doors as of Saturday evening 7th January 2023 when our lease with Disneyland Paris expires.

“Our fabulous team would love to see you again so don’t delay, come and visit us and enjoy our delicious homemade food along with the best cocktails in Disney Village one last time! Or maybe even twice.”

People on social media were left disappointed by the news.

One person said: “Y’all will be missed.”

A second agreed: “I’m gutted personally that you’re going.”

Planet Hollywood first opened at the theme park in 1996, just four years after Disneyland Paris opened.

The two-floor restaurant is loved for its memorabilia and artifacts from popular films and TV shows.

There is also a planetarium-like night-time sky with rock music playing throughout.

It even has its own gift shop inside to buy themed souvenirs to take home.

While Disneyland Paris has not confirmed what will replace it, some suggested it could be a Hard Rock Cafe.

The park celebrated its 30th anniversary this year, opening in April 1992 as Euro Disneyland.

And there is an exciting new attraction opening at Disneyland Paris soon.

A new Frozen-themed land is to open at Disneyland Paris, as well as a new Tangled ride.

Guests will be able to visit Arendelle, home to both Elsa’s ice castle, as well as a Nordic-inspired village that will have both shops and a restaurant.

And here is what to expect from Disneyland Paris’ Halloween events this year with breaks from £154.50pp a night.
