I tried the $100 "Pym-ini" sandwich at Disneyland's Avenger's Campus to see if it's worth it.
I was particularly impressed with the flavors in the sandwich and the side arugula salad.
I don't think it could actually serve eight people, but it's worth it if you share with five or six.
There are plenty of ways to drop $100 on a meal, but spending that much on a sandwich is a stretch, even for Disneyland.
The sandwich in question is served at Pym Test Kitchen in the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park. The restaurant is themed after "Ant-Man" and serves dishes that play with proportions — think giant pretzels and large meatballs on massive metal spoons.

On my latest trip to Disneyland, I decided to see if the multi-serving, $100 sandwich was really worth the money.
Here's how it went:
The Marvel-themed, Italian-style sandwich supposedly serves 6 to 8 people
The family-sized "Pym-ini" sandwich is meant to be shared between six and eight guests, according to Disney, and costs $99.99.
It contains salami, salame rosa with pistachio nuts, rosemary ham, provolone, and sun-dried tomato spread on toasted focaccia. It's also served with marinara dipping sauce, arugula salad, and tater tots.
After placing my mobile order, we waited about 20 minutes for the sandwich. I was able to use my 10% Magic Key discount — Disneyland's version of an annual pass — which brought the price down to $89.99.
When my order was ready, I was taken aback by just how massive the sandwich was.
Including the large side of tater tots, which were served in one of the restaurant's signature massive metal spoons, it required two trays to carry the feast to our table.
The portions were predictably generous, but I was surprised by how good all the flavors were
The sandwich itself was very heavy, and it was served in eight slices.
I tried it first, and it was delicious and full of flavor. It reminded me of an Italian panini
Although I enjoyed the accompanying marinara, I don't think it was needed because the sun-dried tomato spread on the sandwich was great on its own.
The toasted focaccia also served as the perfect vessel. It held up nicely even with all of the ingredients.
There was a generous portion of tater tots. Although they were perfectly crisped, they were pretty standard, so I decided to focus my attention on the sandwich.
The arugula salad was the surprise of the meal. The lettuce was very crispy and dressed with an amazing light vinaigrette. I would gladly go back to order a side of that on its own.
I'm not sure a party of 8 would be satisfied with the sandwich, but it's definitely worth it for a few people to share
Arriving with an appetite, I was able to finish one and a half slices of the sandwich as well as a few tater tots and quite a bit of the arugula salad. It sustained me for the next five hours I spent in the theme park.
I previously tried the individual portion of the Pym-ini, which costs $14.49 and includes one slice of the sandwich and a side of arugula salad. But this didn't end up being a good bargain because I was still hungry after eating it.
Although I don't believe the family-sized version can really serve eight guests, as Disney says, I think it's an incredible value that could easily feed five or six people.
