I will admit, I was hesitant to eat here as I am not a super adventurous eater and buffets can be a bit sketchy. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED my dinner here. The buffet is HUGE, there are so many options that I bet even picky eaters could find something they like. I think I tried pretty much everything and every... More

We have visited Boma twice out of three morning while at Animal Kingdom Lodge and the choice is fantastic. Do try the omelettes and you will definitely not leave here feeling hungry no matter how fussy and eater you are.

Was excited to eat here as our family enjoys Indian and African food. Initially was disappointed in the atmosphere. Packed tables in a smallish space and the buffet spread was not the most impressive from what I was expecting reading previous reviews.that was quickly forgiven after trying the food. Standouts were the jasmine rice,hummus, seafood stew, steak, salmon in orange... More

I dream of going to Africa one day (soon!) and have always been nervous about the food - I'm not the easiest person to please. I reserved dinner at Boma as soon as I knew I'd be going to Orlando and the Disney World area. In part it was to see the animals at this hotel but I quickly learned... More

We have been to WDW twice now, and have enjoyed a dinner at Boma on both visits. On both occasions we have found numerous different dishes and all of fantastic quality. The food is very different from what we eat on a day to day basis, but we love trying new things. The soups are probably the highlight of the... More

Would recommend Boma to anyone. I prefer the breakfast buffet and I'm not typically a breakfast food person. But there is something for everyone. Dinner - had the best soup there. You will get the most enjoyment out of it if you are open to trying new things.

It's not cheap, but it's a really full buffet. The pastries are a standout. Flakey croissants and sticky buns. Build your own omlette bar and crispy bacon were also a hit.

Now I'll be honest with this, it's not my bestest most favouritist of the upper end restaurants and WDW. I do like it, and I love the theming but it's not quite got it for me. My wife loves it, so it's purely a taste thing and perhaps a few too many dishes that have bones in. Having said that... More

This is a great place to load up after a long day at the parks. There are a variety of interesting dishes that are both exotic and safe for the fussy eater in the group. If you have kids, one look at the dessert selection will be enough for them to clean their plates. The staff was ver friendly explaining... More
