This was such a wonderful experience. We had never been to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and had never eaten at Boma. This will not be our last experience. My husband, brother-in-law, and I checked in at the podium five minutes prior to our 6:30 reservation time. Tebby and Venita at the podium were so sweet, kind, and friendly. Boma was... More

$23 for adult buffet, including coffee and juice (oj/guava/passionfruit mixture) is a great deal anywhere, let alone WDW. The food range is wide, with some really good local dishes. Best breakfast in the kingdom!

We went to celebrate my wife's birthday as Boma is one of her favorites. When you try this make sure that you are hungry. They always have 3-4 amazing soups, unlike anywhere else on property. The salmon and beef are always wonderful. You have to try the variety of "african" dishes, but don't worry they are all tweaked for American... More

Of all the wonderful restaurants Disney now has to offer, Boma has my heart! There are multiple buffets with something for literally everyone! You really need to eat here more than once to try everything. SO delicious and worth every penny!

Fantastic food and well themed. I tried every food item on the line, and it was all very tasty. Not too spicy, just enough of a kick. But then again, I like my food a bit spicy so it may be warm. Great atmosphere and the wait wasn't terrible. Similar food was served at Mara, the quick serve restaurant, with... More

The food was sufficient in amount but not quality. There were many choices, none of which were extra ordinary. My biggest peeve was I asked for lemonade on the free beverage listing and was told there was only pomegranate lemonade which I have had in the past and don't like. On the drink menu they had a lemonade drink for... More

Oh my this restaurant is a winner! I would highly recommend you going here! We had an early reservation and on check in they told us we were the family of the day and we would be the first family of the day allowed in. They escorted us in to the beat of drums and clapping and presented us with... More

We have been to both the breakfast and dinner buffet here. We found the dinner buffet to have lots of choices, but the food was a bit too different for us and our picky kids! Breakfast was also some unique items, but we were able to find many more choices we could eat. One plus about coming here is touring... More

Food food and more food and it's all top quality and unique. Boma, situated on the lower level of the Animal Kingdom Lodge, offers African-inspired dishes from simple salads to an intricate carving station with dipping sauces. You have to be ready - HUNGRY - and take your time to work through the buffet beginning to the sweet delicious ending.... More

We came here with a party of 7 based on my recommendation. None of the had eaten here... all raved about the size of the buffet and the selection. The best was the carving station with sirloin, BBQ and the soup selections. The best was the seafood and carrot bisque... phenomenal. Since the menu changes a lot, the food we... More
