As soon as you walk in, you are greeted with the aroma of delicious African BBQ. At first, you may be hesitant about the thought of eating African cuisine, but Disney always comes through with making an amazing experience you'll never forget. It's a great way to try new things without worrying about whether you will like it or not... More

Prepare to wait! Despite making reservations a month in advance, it was a full hour after arriving until we took a sip or a bite. This included waiting in a disorganized line at the hostess stand (the place is not set up for it), 45 minutes of waiting in the hotel's noisy lobby for a text that our table was... More

Boma, at the Animal Kingdom Lodge at Walt Disney World was a lovely dining experience. Yes, it's pricey but the staff was fast and attentive and the food very good. The waffles are shaped like Mickey's head and my grandson was hesitant to eat it because of that. I had to challenge him to bite an ear to get him... More

This is a very busy place. We went on New Years Day and the price was inflated and they didn't honor our annual pass holders discount. Not the end of the world.....but, the tables are very close together and it was packed. The buffet had a lot to choose from.... carved beef and pork, chicken, soups, salads and mini desserts.

Absolute favorite of everything, the Zebra domes. Think delicious brandy surrounded by a chocolate cover. De-li-cious! The Fufu (mashed sweet potatoes) so yummy. Along with the interesting watermelon salad (thin slices in the most amazing glaze). Incredible! If you haven't been, get there soon.

Wonderful food selection, friendly staff, amazing setting. The food was delicious and there was a wide variety. The deserts were all good but the Zebra Domes did steal the show.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't like the food. The was a pretty good buffet with some african inspired culunary creations. Yes it was fun to try a little of everything, but I had no idea it was going to average more than $50 per person to dine here. And then there were the lines. Ugh! Once everyone... More
