  • [Question] The Best Signature Sandwiches

    Disneyland has always been a magical place with my friends and family. Ever since my grandfather visited Disneyland on Opening Day in 1955 my family has gone at least once every year and I find myself planning 3-4 trips now each year.

    Anyway I have read countless general reviews of the many eateries of the park and have wanted to become more involved in the Disney Community as well. I am planning to begin writing in depth reviews with great supporting pictures of not just the eateries but individual dishes that will make it easier for future guests to visualize and mentally/visually experience a menu before they arrive.

    I thought I would start with something simple like the Top 10 Sandwiches on the Disney Property in California. Including Disneyland, DCA, Disney Hotels, and Downtown Disney. Then as I did m research I found out there are at least 58 different Sandwiches in Disneyland / DCA / Disney Hotels alone; followed by at least another 64 in Downtown Disney. They can include Sandwiches, Burgers, Wraps....

    So my primary reason posting is for all of your advice. I have my favorites but I would like to see what the community thinks. I will be at Disneyland from Feb 28 - Mar 2 (specifically for the 24 hour Leap Day Events) and will be writing, photographing, and video recording my reviews at this time.

    I hope you will be able to help me out with your suggestions. Thanks so much and I am glad to be a part of the community.

    Re: The Best Signature Sandwiches

    Nice Post Spirit and I love the sandwiches at the Disneyland Resort, for me I love to go to the Village Haus and have the Pastrami Burger, I can taste it right now lol. Word of caution you need a lot of napkins.
    They offer a lot of pastrami ontop of the burger and well it just tastes great. I will grab me that with a salad and a drink and LOTS OF NAPKINS. And I will just devour that.

          I love the feedback so far. As I was looking over all the menus the Pastrami Burger does look very good. I have to admit I never have once walked into Village Haus i think anytime I have been at Disneyland.

          The Fried Green Tomato Sandwich also looked really good on the menus and I don't think I have been to Hungry Bear to eat since right before The Country Bear Jamboree Closed. We usually head to Winnie the Pooh, character photos, Splash Mountain (if its hot), use the bathroom on the lower floor of Hungry Bear and back into the rest of the park.

            I mentioned in another thread recently, ESPN Zone has a great philly cheesesteak. The Bamba's BBQ wrap at Rainforest Cafe is also good.

              And the Monte Cristo at Cafe Orleans/Blue Bayou is one of the best you will ever eat. (I put the two restaurants together as I was told the sandwiches are made in the same kitchen, that the Blue Bayou costs more because it's more courses of a meal).

                Re: The Best Signature Sandwiches

                I think from what I was reading the Cheesesteak sandwich at ESPN is called the "Zone Cheesesteak" and the Bamba's BBQ Wrap sounds great with the cilantro, four cheese blend, and mango sauce.

                Thank you QuiGonJ for clearing up the Monte Cristo mystery. I thought they were probably the same in construction and quality, just charged more because of the Blue Bayou ambiance.

                Keep the suggestions coming.

                  Ralph Brennan's Cochon de Lait Po-boy is pretty good-slow roasted pork, marinated onions, Creole mustard aioli (minus the pickles for me thanks).

                          Hmmm I think HOT is an overstatement, mine was warm the last 2 times I have had it.
