When we arrived, the line was long, but I didn't mind. I needed time to survey my options on the menu. For those of you who aren't aware, Earl of Sandwich is a counter service restaurant in Downtown Disney that sells, well, sandwiches! James decided to order The Original 1762 (roast beef, cheddar cheese, and horseradish sauce), and I went with the Italian (salami, capicola, roasted ham, mortadella, mozzarella cheese, Roma tomato, and Italian dressing). I looked for the brownie frosting sandwich that I had previously seen on the Disney Food Blog, but they didn't seem to have it. Before we knew it, our sandwiches were ready, and we found a seat in the packed dining room.
Have you ever had a pepperoni pinwheel? It's basically dough, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni formed in the shape of a cinnamon roll. That's exactly what my Italian sandwich tasted like. I was thrown for a loop a little bit because I was in the mood for a sandwich, not a pepperoni pinwheel. Overall the sandwich was good, but I was less than enthused since it wasn't what I was looking for. James, on the other hand, really liked his sandwich. I would definitely return to Earl of Sandwich, but probably not for the Italian sandwich. I've come to the realization that I'm not very into hot sandwiches in general, so I'd probably stick to an old classic: the BLT. If you're not into sandwiches either, they also have soups ($2.99) and salads ($5.99). The sandwiches are $5.99 also, though all of these prices are as of the time of this writing.
What is your favorite thing at Earl of Sandwich? Did you think the Italian tasted like a pepperoni pinwheel? Do you make Earl of Sandwich a regular destination on your trips to Walt Disney World? Let me know your thoughts on the restaurant in a comment, on Twitter (@amandaenchanted), or on Facebook!
