The story is that Earl of Sandwich was actually a person who first discovered the tastiness and convenience of putting meat between two pieces of bread. This particular restaurant is giving credit to this individual, plus filling the bellies of Disney guests with their vast variety of sandwiches.
But this is Disney World, and while lines are unavoidable, Cast Members are experts at keeping things moving. In fact, a friendly Cast Member was stationed at the door to direct us to the line and handed us a menu (pictured above) so we would have an idea of what to order.
I should also mention that while we visited at lunch, the Earl of Sandwich is also open for breakfast and offers breakfast sandwiches, parfaits, oatmeal, and etc.
We must admit, it was difficult to find a table during this busy time of day; but to the restaurant's credit, there was A LOT of seating on both sides of the dining area, plus tables outside. It probably would've been smarter to drop in for an early lunch, or to wait to around 1 o'clock and beyond for a late, crowd-free lunch.
Now that we know just how good The Earl of Sandwich is, we would definitely try the signature roast beef sandwich with its cheddar and horseradish sauce next time, or the Caprese which consists of mozzarella, tomato, and balsamic vinaigrette!
If shopping at Downtown Disney has you hungry, be sure to drop by The Earl of Sandwich!
