As we told you last week, Walt Disney World has decided to dip its toes into the reopening waters by doing a limited opening of Disney Springs on Tuesday, May 20.
Based on government requirements, as well as guidance from health authorities such as the CDC and appropriate government agencies, Disney is implementing a number of new health and safety measures and operational changes for this reopening.
Here’s what you need to know…
The best dining deal at Downtown Disney just got a little more expensive, as Earl of Sandwich has raised their prices.
The majority of the sandwiches, salads and wraps have gone up 50 cents to $6.49. Some of the sides have increased by 30 – 50 cents, too.
The real hit comes with the beverages. While coffee, hot tea, hot chocolate, and bottled beverages have gone up 30 – 80 cents each, fountain sodas and iced tea have gone up $1 or $1.50, depending on the size you choose, to $2.99 and $3.49.
In addition to an increase in prices, the sandwiches appear to be a little stingy with the ingredients, and a bit smaller in size. My dining partner noticed it, too.
It is still one of the better dining deals at Walt Disney World, but now you’re paying more for less of what you used to get. I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to continue to recommend this place, if this is the direction they’re going.
Earl of Sandwich is located at the Downtown Disney Marketplace. Passholders get 10% off, and AAA members get 15% off.
