About Earl of Sandwich
Earl of Sandwich is a cozy little quick service spot that makes your meal fresh to order in one of the speediest and most efficient kitchens at Walt Disney World. While the ordering process is streamlined, there’s still a warm family feel to the place with lots of wood, British paraphernalia, and stories about the Montagu family (hint: they invented the sandwich). The fresh baked bread, handmade sandwiches, and racks of British condiements on the tables make you feel like you're in someone's home, no matter how busy the crowds get.
This spot is open from 8:30am each day until the Marketplace closes at 11pm. It's the first thing that opens at Disney Springs (other shops and restaurants begin to open at 9am), and all day long you can smell the delcious aromas wafting out of the door into the Marketplace.
You’ll find this great little sandwich shop in the Marketplace at Disney Springs, nestled in the back near Wolfgang Puck Express, Goofy’s Candy Co. and Disney’s Days of Christmas – it’s actually attached to Mickey’s Pantry. If you’re using Walt Disney World transportation, you’ll pass it on your way to or from the Marketplace bus stop.
