“ Address: Disneyland Resort Paris / 77705 Marne la Vallee Cedex 04 / France „
I recently went to Planet Hollywood Disneyland Resort Paris while on holiday with my family. We went there because we have had previous good experiences in other Planet Hollywoods around the world. All I can say is what a disaster! The restaurant has a good decor and some interesting movie memorabilia - but you go to a restaurant for food. Both my wife and daughter ordered a pepperoni pizza each but these were tasteless cardboard and completely inedible. My son had a burger which was at best average and I was lucky enough to order a salad, which was good. This less than average food was overpriced rubbish.The service was good but the waitresses were rushed.If you want a good after-park experience, definately do not go to Planet Hollywood, Paris.
When I went to Disneyland Paris last year we ate at Planet Hollywood on our first night. It is located in the Disney village so it is right outside the parks and if you're staying in one of the Disney hotels then it's on your way home in the evening. The outside of it looks amazing, you enter thru this huge Globe on a giant escilator. From the lobby up to the dining area, the place is full of movie memorabilia. There's so much to look at and keeps you entertained while you wait for you food.
The food is a bit pricey but then it is a sit down meal and the food was really good. Big portions and also so much choice. The service was also very good. It does get very busy with families so it is best to either go there earlier or later than normal dinner time. We went around 5/6pm and had a late lunch/early dinner and it wasn't too busy then.
After a long day at Disney its great to have a proper sit down meal and in my opinion Planet Hollywood fits the bill.
Ive eaten there a few times now and have always really enjoyed the food, the portions are huge and the staff are helpful. The food is expensive but is reasonable value for money, as Planet Hollywood is hardly McDonalds.
The outside of the building at Disney is a huge globe with celebrities and lights all over it, you walk up a staircase to enter the restaraunt and there are displays from movies all over the place. The restaraunt does get very crowded and busy in peak seasons so looking at the displays may be tricky.
There is a photographer which comes around to the tables and takes a picture of you and your friends, but ive always found this abit anoying and the photos he tries to sell you afterwards are very expensive.
There is a gift shop downstairs, but mostly all they sell is T Shirts at quite a price. Ive never been to any of the other Planet Hollywoods so cannot compare, but ive always tried to have at least one meal at Planet Hollywood on every trip to Disney as the food is much better than most places in the park.
As you can imagine a day at Disneyland consumes and awful lot of energy, hot dog stalls are hideously pricey and so by the time it gets to evening you'll be keeling over and hallucentating about food.
My friends and I had all decided in the morning that we'd eat at Planet Hollywood so we made a beeline for this restaurant which is placed just by the entrance to the parks. Its exterior design is the same as it is everywhere else so it is easily recognizable.
I'd never eaten in any of the other restaurants in the chain so I was quite excited to try the food as I'd heard it was good.
Much to my dismay I'd heard wrong.
The restaurant was heaving, which meant we had to wait for a table. However, the bar was nice, the decor is interesting and gives you something to look at as you are waiting for your table. My friends and I spent our time trying to identify all the different characters and actors on the walls.
We were placed in a booth seat and therefore the 6 of us felt like sardines in a tin, which always results in the annoying situations where if one person needs to get up for the toilet, everybody else has to get up to let this person out.
The menu itself I felt didn't offer a very large variety of plates, all sounding rather unappealing. My friend, a vegetarian, really struggled to find a suitable dish and settled for one she wasn't exceedingly happy about getting. I ordered the lasange.
Whilst waiting for our food a couple of us went to browse the gift shop which was a let down, the t-shirts were overly tacky and I failed to see how they could possibly be worth the extortionate prices. I left without buying anything, which I'd been dead set on doing.
We returned to find our food on the table, which was quick....great when youre in a hurry but made me a little weary about the quality.
My plate looked to be full of dogfood in eggy-like pockets to be quite honest...defnitely unappealing. I started anyway....the taste matched the aesthetics...I was furious. Another friend at the table found she didn't have what she ordered, yet the staff were uncooperative so she ate it anyway. Non of us were pleased with our meal.
The photographer then came round and took a picture of our group which I thought was nice, however a few moments later he came back with a copy of the picture in a frame and a smaller version in a keyring. They looked good but he was charging £15 for each or £20 for both which I didn't think was worth it after having paid more than that for a horrible meal.
When the waiter came round to collect our large amount of left over and take them away, he offered dessert....I couldn't think of anything worse!
A bad end to a great day.
When I went to Disney last year we pre booked 2 days meal vouchers for Planet Hollywood in the Disney Village. As we had booked the whole package through a tour operator we booked the vouchers with them. Each voucher cost £13 per person and this was for a 'Pretty Woman' meal voucher which meant that we could have a main meal from a set selection and a desert plus a drink. Considering the cost of meals to buy once you are at Disney we decided this would be a good option to have prebooked as it would save us having to spend as much cash whilst there.
The location of the Planet Hollywood restaurant at Disneyland Paris means that you really can't miss it - it is located right at the entrance to the Disney Village which is facing the main Disney park and to the side of the Studios. As you walk under the arch to go into the Disney Vvillage area the restaurant is located directly in front of you and has a ball shapedas the roof with a flight of stairs to take you into it. There is a lift for disabled guest to enter the restaurant.
We were glad we had done this as first of all the food was excellent - a decent amount of choice available to choose form and when we did get our food the portion was pretty big, hence we did not go hungry!! We both had a burger option and they were tasty and served with fries and a side salad.
The waitresses in the restaurant were helpful and friendly - service was quick and we were seated pretty quickly - the second day we used our voucher the restaurant was heaving but, we still got seated fairly quickly.
We looked at the menu and for where it is it could be more expensive but, it is nice to note that if you are paying whilst there the prices aren't as extreme as you'd probably expect them to be.
The decor is the same as all Planet Hollywood restaurants with the usual memorabilia on the walls and the entrance to this particular one is pretty groovy with a red tunnel that is lit up at night that takes you up to the second floor of the restaurant. There is also a bar upstairs where you can get a drink should you need to wait for a table.
Overall it was a pleasant experience with great service, great food and brilliant atmosphere - more so in the evening as the place is busier with photographers coming around too to take pictures if you want them to!
After a long day at Disneyland Paris, sit down and enjoy a delicious meal at Planet Hollywood.
