We were on the dining plan, and decided to have dinner here one night. There is ample selection of food for everyone - even if you don't want African food. Good selection of soups, salads, carved meats, veggies, and desserts.

Boma is a very good buffet. There was a wide selection that should satisfy most tastes. Our server was friendly and we enjoyed the meal.

Wide variety of African-themed food. There were also a few American-themed choices for the kids. The servers were excellent! Good buffet, but pricey.

This place is super special. Unfortunately, it's expensive. However, the food is amazing and if you can justify the cost - it works. If you time it so that you have a late breakfast, and skip lunch - it's not even 'that' expensive! The food is hands-down the best. There are a ton of meats available (fat sausages, bacon, ham,...

We have been here several times by staying at the Disney parks. We have always had a good experience at this restaurant, but this time we were disappointed. Many of the meets were very dry and not as flavorful as you would expect. Dessert options were not very tasty and the lines were very very long. We felt that even... More

Breakfast here for the first time. Options are diverse and endless. Everything we tried was really good and maintained at the correct temperature (a must for buffets in my opinion). We can only imagine what dinner is like and can't wait to find out!

Very expensive meal. $43 per head for everyone over 9yrs. Soups and desserts delicious. Have no idea what main courses like as queue stretched through the restaurant. Reciculous not to have a large enough station to cope with the demand for main courses.

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
