Best Disney Sandwiches

We asked over on the Disney Food Blog Facebook Page for folks to tell us about their favorite sandwiches in a Disney park or resort. We didn’t specify anything — just that it had to be a “sandwich” of some kind. Here’s what we heard back!

The biggest shout-outs went to Columbia Harbour House in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Blue Bayou/Cafe Orleans in Disneyland Resort, and not surprisingly, Earl of Sandwich in Disney World’s Downtown Disney.

Earl of Sandwich — Walt Disney World

Do not let the long line deter you. It moves quickly and the wait is worth it. You’ve just got to try one of these hearty and hot signature sandwiches!

Located in Downtown Disney’s Marketplace, Earl of Sandwich is the most popular sandwich stop in Walt Disney World according to our Facebook readers. The sandwiches with the most mentions are absolutely delicious.

Columbia Harbour House — Walt Disney World

Lighthouse Sandwich
The lighthouse sandwich, with hummus, tomato & broccoli slaw, is one of the wonderful good-tasting, good-for-you counter-service items! Thanks to Gray at for use of this photo. You can read her review of CHH here.

Blue Bayou and Cafe Orleans

The Blue Bayou is an enchanting restaurant that sits on the indoor riverbank of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. Disney magic provides fireflies and singing crickets in a twilight-atmosphere. The ever-popular Monte Cristo sandwich is served there only at lunch, so plan your Advance Dining Reservations accordingly.Cafe Orleans presents the infamous Monte Cristo sandwich at lunch and dinner. Dine outdoors on the patio in pleasant weather, and don’t forget to order an extra side of sauce with your pommes frites!

    Matt loves the Anchors Aweigh Sandwich at CHH. I like the Reuben at Plaza Restaurant and the Italian Sausage sandwich at Min & Bill’s Dockside Diner. Ok, now I need to head over to the parks… :)

    Columbia Harbor House is dead to me for removing my longtime favorite sandwich at Walt Disney World: the Starboard Deck (ham, cheese, tomato, and broccoli slaw.) Coming in at a close second is Pizzafari’s “hot Italian style sandwich.”

  3. Valerie says

    DS and I love the breakfast sandwich at Main Street Bakery…ham, egg and cheese on a coissant. He calls it “crack on a coissant.”

  4. Betsy says

    Do the ice cream cookie sandwiches at Sleepy Hollow count as sandwiches? Because I always feel okay about having one for “dinner” …

  5. Sandra says

    The one CS meal we actually look forward to in MK is CHH, where we get one each of the Lighthouse and Anchors Away sandwiches and swap halves, thus removing the necessity to choose one. The Moroccan style shawarma sandwiches at Tangierine Cafe in Epcot are big with my husband–followed by coffee and baklava, of course.

    My husband also liked the Cuban at the Bongos walk-up window. However, Earl of Sandwich is tops for a family meal at DTD, with lots of really good and inexpensive choices, even for those of us who are not big meat eaters.

  6. says

    @Sandra – Tangierine Cafe is my favorite counter service. I always debate with myself between on whether to order the Lamb or Falafel Wrap!

  7. Mark D. says

    I have not ever had any sandwich at WDW. What is wrong with me? These all, including the comments, sound great. I am going to have to rectify this situation.

  8. Courtney says

    There was a sandwich called BBQ Chicken Focaccia at Wolfgang Puck Express that I loved. I used to dream about this sandwich. I raced over there the first day of our Dec trip last year and it was gone. I was heartbroken.

  9. EEFoster says

    I’m a big fan of the BLT at the Earl of Sandwich. I am thrilled, thrilled, thrilled (did I say I was thrilled?) that they’re opening an Earl in New York City.

    Folks should know that the Earl of Sandwich is open for breakfast. They have several egg-based breakfast sandwiches on the menu at that time of day, but they will also make any of the lunch sandwiches then too.

  10. Emma Godbold says

    It’s the Earl of Sandwich for me in DTD. Their food is awesome! In December we queued for half an hour to place our order but I must say those guys know how to serve a queue as quickly as possible! Love it!!!

  11. SharonC says

    The turkey sandwich on the AWESOME sunflower bread at Flame Tree BBQ at AK. I know – I know, I should be going there for the BBQ. But, I am a breadaholic, and that sunflower bread makes this sandwich a must-have for me.

  12. Sarah says

    I L.O.V.E. the Hawaiian sandwich from Earl of Sandwich. When I visit my sister a little north of Orlando, I make a special trip to DTD for lunch. It’s a problem… but one I’m willing to have.

  13. Galloping Gourmand says

    I’ve just realized how rarely I get sandwiches at WDW. I mean for me it’s basically Earl of Sandwich and that’s it. I think that’s my Disney Resolution for my next trip – eat more sandwiches.

  14. Jan says

    The angus burger at The Contemporary’s quick service restaurant is great says DH. I loved the grilled chicken sandwich there too.

  15. says

    I LOVE the Monte Cristo from the Blue Bayou in Disneyland! My husband and I went there for my birthday a few years ago and it was awesome.

    Earl of Sandwich sounds really good, we might have to check it out when we go.

  16. Wendy says

    Oh. There is absolutely no question in my mind as to what my favorite sandwich on Disney property is! THE ORIGINAL at Earl of Sandwich! It is amazing. Ever since I first tried it, it has remained a “must eat” for every single trip. 276 days until I can have another ;)

  17. carolyn says

    Gotta give it up for Earl of Sandwich. Easily the best bargain at WDW! I also want to plug the sammies over at Plaza Inn at MK – they’re pretty good too, although twice as much as EoS!

  18. Essie says

    I love the EOS’s All American and I get one on every trip. Their bread is so good that I could enjoy just the bread with some butter on it. I wish we had an EOS where I lived. CHH is my Fav QS in the MK.

  19. says

    Does anyone else lament the removal of the Turkey Bacon Panini from Pinnochio Village Haus? Having one of those while watching people embark on the Happiest Cruise was just shy of heaven for me :) I happily waved bon voyage!

  20. scooper150 says

    The best “sandwich” at Disney World is by FAR the Mac and cheese hot dog with bacon and truffle oil served at the shack right outside of the haunted mansion!!!!

  21. Beth says

    There was a stacked deli sandwich at Cosmic Rays a few years back that was awesome. It was so big that you didn’t need to eat the rest of the day! One day it just vanished :(

  22. carol says

    Im so fussy when it comes to they do just plain meat sandwiches with no fuss.

  23. Jennifer Tippetts says

    My favorites used to be the Monte Cristo at either Blue Bayou or Cafe Orleans and the Muffalatta at The French Market. But now I’ve gone vegetarian, it’s all about the Fried Green Tomato “Burger” at Hungry Bear and the Grilled Veggie Sandwich at Tomorrowland Terrace

  24. Dave says

    I can’t believe no one has mentioned the Croque Monsieur offered at lunch at Be Our Guest. I ate in 2 days in a row and loved every bite. Not only is the sandwich truly terrific, but it comes with a plate of delicious thin, crispy fries and at $13.99 isn’t unreasonably priced for Disney.
