Is it worth a Table Dining plan token is my only query about taking breakfast at Boma. Consider getting most from the plan with more expensive meals, and perhaps pay cash for breakfast... Animal Kingdom Lodge is a great place to visit, especially if you are headed to Animal Kingdom for the day. Get a chance to survey the savanna... More

This was a great experience. The decor really gives a great African vibe. The food selection was great. A big variety of choices, some more exotic, but plenty of choices that are more familiar. The meats were very good and served hot and fresh. The salads and vegetables were all fine. We had heard about the Zebra Domes for dessert... More

My wife and I regularly visit Boma on our Disney trips. Food the and atmosphere is amazing. The restaurant is buffet style with several areas of foods. Starting from right to left: There is a hot meat area with some hot African veggie dishes. The carved meats are usually prime rib and either a poultry or fish. There are also... More

We have been to Boma for both breakfast and dinner. Both experiences were fantastic. The quality and variety of food on the buffet are surprising. Most buffets don't reach such heights. The staff are wonderful and really seem to care about your experience.

Booked well in advance as we absolutely love this buffet, very disappointed to be kept waiting for 45 minutes. It's quite expensive at 43 dollars for anyone over 9 years, this is fine for adults as the food is exciting, varied and spicy. Not so good for my 10 year old as there is little choice for children with a... More

Started one of our mornings enjoying an incredible buffet at Boma. Reservations are encouraged but you can certainly get in with a small wait if you forget. I have to say that this buffet is the best breakfast one I've been to and that's after a trip to Vegas this past year where they are famous for buffets. I was... More

Boma was so good we ate there twice. We had Dining Plan for our trip so sticker shock of buffet didn't concern us. At $45-50 per person I would probably think twice. Is this the best buffet ever? Probably not, but I wasn't disappointed with selection of various foods, African twists, and ability to get food quickly that was hot... More

We have been here before. The hotel is lovely as well as the decor. The restaurant area is nice as well. I am not a great fan of buffets. I have a tendency to eat too much. This time, I did not. But, there are so many choices at this buffet and I find that the cutting in and out... More

Boma offers each member of a dining party a fantastic means of experiencingl African fare in an interesting venue. The menu strives to include a dish from each African country's culinary tradition. The food is served buffet-style, but the staff keeps it coming at a rate that ensures freshness. My family and I have eaten at Boma many, many times... More
