We've had a few dinners at Boma and it remains a safe bet. This buffet has a huge selection and freshness and quality remain top-notch. We usually have difficulty saving room for dessert but you must try their heavenly delights, the desserts are unbelievable :) We have always used the Disney Dining Plan here and never had an issue.

We ate at Boma whilst staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge. We booked a table, which is usually recommended when dining at Disney and were seated right away. The server was great, he came and took our drinks order quickly, made sure he gave us all the information about the specials that were being cooked that evening and returned with our... More

We went for dinner. It is a buffet. There were some foods that were new to us. We all tried new dishes and were pleasantly surprised. The new flavors were a great experience. Will definitely go back. Next time we will try breakfast since the smells were incredible.

This is a great restaurant for vegetarians and anyone who likes to eat healthily. Sure they have all the useful favourites you'd find on a Disney buffet, but they also have lots of authentic African dishes, and the great idea of a buffet is you can try a bit of everything. The setting is beautiful and the staff were great,... More

We discovered this place after eating at the Tusker House in Animal Kingdom. For trips through Orlando when we are not going to the Animal Kingdom, we plan a stop at the Animal Kingdom Lodge to eat (we can't always take the time or spend the $ to go to the parks). They have a great spread for brunch and... More

I usually dislike buffets, especially because there is usually few options for me being a vegetarian. This restaurant is the exception! They had endless vegetarian options, and each one was more delicious than the last. A lot of them were healthy too. I actually left feeling full but not stuffed. Great atmosphere too.

Boma's has so many items that are new and different and not your run of the mill food. It's great to have some new flavors to choose from. The chef is great who takes you around and shows you everything you can have that is safe to eat. There's plenty of non-gf food too for everyone else!

The buffet at Boma was plentiful and diverse. There were items to please the varied palates of all five of us-- including those who preferred traditional "American" fare and those of us who wanted to try some new flavors. The food was well prepared, but I would say there was not much in the way of "wow" for the price... More
