Updated:

Planet Hollywood is hosting a week-long celebration for the opening of their transformed Disney Springs location, and they kicked it off in a big way with a visit from international pop star Britney Spears.

The former Mousekeeter braved the rain with her family to greet fans along the red carpet at the re-vamped Planet Hollywood Observatory.

Following her red carpet visit, Britney was then whisked away to the second floor of the restaurant for a private lunch with her mother, sister, Jamie Lynn, and their children.

Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon will continue the festivities later this week with an official ribbon cutting ceremony at Planet Hollywood Observatory.
