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

Lots of great food to choose from in the breakfast buffet. There were more "American" favorites than anything else, but still some new things to try. The food was always nice and hot, and they replenish it quickly. The Jamba Juice is sooooo good!

This restaurant is my favourite in Walt Disney World, so I make a point of visiting it whenever I am there. The buffet style means that you can choose what to sample and what not to, as there is a huge variety - some dishes more appealing than others depending on your tastes. All the food is laid out in...

We ate here on a leisurely morning where we weren't going to the parks. There were some interesting items on the buffet that were unique to the African culture and most were quite good. Overall a pretty good buffet - maybe a little on the pricey side but not bad for WDW.

Good cuisine and was a welcome difference to the food I've been eating in Disney for two weeks. Excellent service too. Well worth a visit. Only downside is the buffet is a bit of a free for all and not quite as relaxing or structured as I'd hoped.

I normally always eat at Cape May at the Beach Club but my wife booked Boma since we are new DVC members and our home resort is the Animal Kingdom lodge. We had an excellent time and the food was amazing. The meats were out of this world and there was enough selection so even the pickiest of eaters had... More

Variety was good, but not to the price of a simple buffet. Kid's should be half the price at least. Adults should be a bit less. Food was well prepared, but they were missing some plates or had to wait long times to get served. Overall it would have been a better experience if they priced it right.

We ate here on our second last evening at Disney and we were so glad we did. Being from South Africa the food at Boma felt almost like home! Great selection at the buffet that is a true reflection of African (but mostly South African) cuisine. Be sure not to miss out on the Cape Malay Curry as well as... More
