$100 Disneyland sandwich ranks as one of the world’s most expensive

A new panini sandwich concocted in a Marvel superhero themed “food innovation science lab” restaurant that can shrink and expand meals comes with an eye-popping, super-sized $100 price tag aimed at Disneyland visitors traveling on a Tony Stark budget.

The new $99.99 Quantum-sized Pym-ini Sandwich coming to the Pym Test Kitchen when Avengers Campus debuts June 4 at Disney California Adventure ranks among the world’s most expensive sandwiches.

What’s in the sandwich? For that price, it better come with super powers and side of immortality.

The new Marvel land’s Pym Test Kitchen, themed to Ant-Man and the Wasp, will serve meals that have been shrunk or expanded in size. The foods will be resized using Pym Particles, the same technology used to shrink Ant-Man and the Wasp, according to the backstory for the restaurant.

The most shocking item on the Pym Test Kitchen menu: The $100 Quantum-sized Pym-ini Sandwich, which comes with salami, rosemary ham, provolone and sun-dried tomato spread on toasted focaccia. It’s served with marinara dipping sauce and an arugula salad.

The super expensive Disneyland resort sandwich was unveiled this week as DCA prepares to open the new Avengers Campus next month. The Pym Test Kitchen website initially listed three sizes for the Pym-ini sandwich: $14.99 for a single serving along with $57.99 and $99.99 for larger versions, according to WDW News Today.

The $58 version of the panini is no longer on the Pym Test Kitchen website. The $100 sandwich now includes a new addendum to the menu explaining that the meal “serves 6-8 guests” after the high-priced family-sized item started making headlines on Disney fan sites like Inside the MagicAllEars and Disney Food Blog.

The $100 Avengers Campus panini will be one of the most expensive food items at the Disneyland resort. Napa Rose at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel offers a $155 Vinter’s Menu with wine flight for $155. Steakhouse 55 at the Disneyland Hotel has a Porterhouse for Two on the menu at $138.

The cost of the Quantum Pym-ini works out to about $12.50 to $16.50 per serving with the average price about the same as a $14.99 single serving.

But it’s the $100 Disneyland sandwich price tag that will have Avengers Campus visitors talking and social media influencers buzzing.

The triple-digit price tag puts the Marvel superhero sub in rare territory among the world’s most expensive sandwiches.

2020 Money Inc. list of the top 10 most expensive sandwiches in the world includes the $120 Wagyu rib-eye and foie gras cheesesteak from Philadelphia’s Barclay Prime, $150 Von Essen Platinum Club from the Michelin-starred Cliveden House in the United Kingdom and $225 Bacon Bling from the U.K.’s Tangberry’s Cafe.

The Guinness Book of World Records named the $214 Quintessential Grilled Cheese Sandwich from New York’s Serendipity 3 the “most expensive sandwich” in 2014.

A grilled cheese sandwich said to bear an image of the Virgin Mary sold on eBay in 2004 for $28,000.

The Pym Test Kitchen panini doesn’t have super-premium ingredients such as Wagyu beef, foie gras, white truffles, quail eggs, Kaluga caviar and 24-karat gold dust like many of the world’s most expensive sandwiches.

The $100 Disneyland sandwich — unlike most of the other contenders on the list of the world’s most expensive sandwiches — is designed to be eaten by more than one person.

The $100 Ant Man and the Wasp panini price tag is in line with the $100 6-foot Giant Sub at Subway — but that mega-meal serves 25 people. Jimmy John’s serves a 16-inch J.J. Gargantuan Giant for $18.99 that Eat This, Not That calls the most expensive sandwich at popular fast food chains.

Disneyland is no stranger to high-priced meals. A seven-course dinner for 12 at 21 Royal Street in New Orleans Square will set you back a cool $15,000. If you invite Tony Stark, he might pick up the tip.
