We ate here for dinner and really enjoyed the variety of African dishes on offer. Boma is set in the magnificent Animal Kingdom Lodge. Make sure you give yourself time to walk around the hotel and the amazing grounds. We got to see some giraffes no more than fifty yards away. The restaurant was really busy and there seemed to...

A variety of tasty choices. Preferred many of the sauces, stews, and less common offerings to the steak, chicken, and turkey main course offerings. Same was true with the desert offerings. Guava panna cotta was much more tasty than the cookies and brownie. Before dinner, greatly enjoyed seeing the giraffes, zebra, and other animals at dusk right outside the back... More

This buffet included dishes from South Africa which were fun to try and tasted amazing. A ham and corned beef carving station manned by Melvin, working over a hot fire, obviously very hot and busy, but quietly serving the freshly cut meat with a smile. And, for the not so adventurous, lots and lots of eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, cereals,... More

We have been vacationing at WDW for ten years and have always taken a peek at BOMA while visiting the Animal Kingdom Lodge, but this time we decided to try it for Valentine's Day. The place was JAMMED. Head to tow. Top to bottom, but just like any Disney restaurant, really. Tables are smooshed together to get as many guests... More

Lots of unique foods and helpful staff. A chef guided us through the line to identify vegetarian and vegan options. On another visit with a vegan group a chef brought a tray of vegan desserts to the table without being asked.

We have made a point to have breakfast here every trip for years. If you want a good buffet for breakfast this is it. The food and service is wonderful. If you have time walk around the beautiful resort while there. Go and enjoy .

We were visiting the animal kingdom, and decided to dine at Boma. I'm not a fan of buffets but this one was good. All the food was hot and tasteful. They could of had a bigger selection of appetizers and desserts. The prime rib was tasty, as well as the beef and lamb casserole. The macaroni and cheese melted in... More

We were there for a family get-together. The meat I tried was generally overdone and tough. The only dishes I really enjoyed were the seafood chowder and the vanilla pudding. Fancy price for not very fancy food.

This was one of the highlights foodwise from our Disney trip in December. The food is phenomenal and abundant. So much to choose from. Went with my husband and 4 year old son who also loved it. We loved that it was buffet style so we could try a lot of stuff that we had never heard of or seen... More
