How about a do-over?
Months after Earl of Sandwich closed along with several other restaurants and the movie theaters on the western edge of Disneyland's Downtown Disney, the popular sandwich shop will reopen at its original location, Disney announced tonight.
The Downtown Disney establishments closed to make way for construction of a planned fourth hotel at the resort. But when the City of Anaheim pulled back a tax incentive for the project, all hell broke loose, and now the hotel project is off the table.
Well, at least for now. Which, not coincidentally, is pretty much the operating plan for Earl of Sandwich. Disney says that the chain "will be returning soon" and "for a limited time" at its original location.
Whether that means the restaurant will close permanently after that limited time, or move elsewhere within the resort, or what that limited time will be anyway... all remains to be seen. As does pretty much everything else involving the fourth hotel and Disneyland's political relationship with the City of Anaheim.
Until then, though, enjoy a sandwich!Tweet
