LOVED IT!

We ate at Boma and had wonderful service and attention. My daughter has severe food allergies and they went above and beyond to make her special and safe food. The decor and Wilderness Lodge are AMAZING. The food was delicious, especially the soups and desserts. A MUST DO!!!

I seriously do not have much positive to say about this restaurant. I was very much let down by all the hype of the food. It was the most expensive corn dogs and Mac n cheese our children have ever had. I really did not enjoy but about two of the options and one was a curry soup and the... More

I had read all of the great reviews for Boma and knew I had to get there on my recent Disney trip. There were a lot of great things about this restaurants - the food was excellent with a wide selection of (very) delicious salads, soups, meat, etc. If you have fussy eaters, don't worry as there is a great...

The zebra domes are to die for! We love the different variety of meats, soups, salads and did I mention zebra domes??? We always make sure to book reservations at this place as it never disappoints us, EVER! One of the best buffet meals at Disney resorts. Seriously, so fun to try the different ethnic foods of Africa right in... More

Great place to eat! Boma is in the Animal Kingdom Lodge and definitely worth a visit (even if you're staying in another Disney hotel!). Its a buffet resturant so you go and help yourself. There's a lot of variety with some great African dishes (and a few staple American dishes). I found myself wanting to try everything and eating far... More

It's crowded and busy but the food is delicious. We ate here for dinner. Plenty of variety on the bar. If you want to try new dishes then this is the buffet for you. For a family of 4 you'll spend over $100. I highly recommend using your dining credit here if you're on the Dining Plan.

Last night was my first, but definitely not my last trip to Boma. What an amazing display of things to temp your palate with. The service was second to none as we had a great server named Victor, and every time I looked, the buffet was being attended, cleaned and always looked fresh. If your looking to try something new,...
