Guess what Earl of Sandwich fans out West! Disneyland Resort has just confirmed that the popular sandwich shop will be returning to its original location in Downtown Disney in the near future. The quick-service eatery, inspired by John Montagu, the Earl who invented the sandwich in 1762 closed earlier this Summer.
It is unknown at this time how long Earl of Sandwich will be reopened. One can guess that the reopening is due to plans for Disneyland’s newest luxury resort being in limbo over a tax dispute with the City of Anaheim. Earl of Sandwich closed along with the AMC Theater, Rainforest Cafe, ESPN Zone, and Starbucks to make room for the new resort. Since plans are still on hold, we imagine the restaurant will be open indefinitely.
There’s lot more excitement in store for those visiting Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort. This Fall will bring the debut of the Salt & Straw ice cream shop, Ballast Point, and Black Tap Burgers & Shakes. Also, a re-imagined World of Disney Store and Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria will be unveiled. (Both World of Disney and Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria are open during the refurbishment.)
