The Earl of Sandwich shop in Downtown Disney pays homage to the sandwich’s inventor, John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. Montagu came up with the idea of putting meat between two slices of bread for a meal that could be eaten without utensils in 1762.

The first Earl of Sandwich restaurant opened at Downtown Disney in Anaheim, California in 2013.
