Earl of Sandwich to Open in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney
Disneyland guests will soon have a brand-new dining option to look forward to, as Disney has announced that the popular quick-service restaurant Earl of Sandwich will open in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney in early summer 2012. The restaurant, known for its sandwiches and salads, already has locations in Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris.
“We are looking forward to the grand opening of our newest location at the Disneyland Resort,” stated Robert Earl, chairman of Earl of Sandwich. “The success we’ve experienced at Walt Disney World, Disneyland Paris and our other 15 locations has proven that the quality of our food and our dining experience will bring guests back time and time again.”
The new Earl of Sandwich will be replacing Compass Books in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney, located adjacent to the AMC Theatres. The shop will serve lunch and dinner options, including sandwiches, salads, soups, wraps, and desserts, as well as breakfast options each morning.
“We pride ourselves in giving our guests a unique experience at Downtown Disney through different retail and food offerings,” said Tony Bruno, vice president of Resort Hotels and Downtown Disney. “This will be the only Earl of Sandwich in California and it is sure to be a favorite among our guests as it has been at Walt Disney World for nearly eight years.”
In addition, Disneyland guests and coffee lovers may soon be in for a treat, as there are rumors that after long negotiations, Starbucks may soon be making an appearance in Disneyland’s Downtown Disney as well. While the location of the rumored coffee shop is currently being kept secret, one possible location may be in the east wing of the La Brea Bakery building. Stay tuned for more news about these new additions.
