I enjoyed our meal at Boma. The foods were fun and interesting. I would have liked them to be even more authentic, as they were really American foods, with an African flair. The only problem was that it was so crowded. In spite of a 7:40 reservation made moths in advance, we were not seated until around 8:30.

One of the best self service food at disney. A lot of options, great desert and nice atmosphere. Service is very good and you can book it in some cases for the same day.

Ate here for breakfast again on this past trip. On my last trip to Disney, I stayed at AKL, so it was easy to get here for breakfast. This past trip, I was staying at another resort so we had to take a bus to AK and then a bus from there to AKL. Disney recommends allowing an hour to... More

My family of 4 had breakfast here before a day at Animal Kingdom. We didn't stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge but decided to try this place as we'd never been. It has all the breakfast items you'd expect and more, in all-you -can-eat fashion. The hotel and restaurant were very, very nice and the food was just above average.... More

This restaurant has a welcoming staff and wonderfully delicious food. The curry pasta salad, peanut coconut rice, and the chicken curry soup are among my favorites.

Went here with my family and I just loved it. A great place to eat at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. We didnt have reservations at the time and they got us in. Though I'd recommend reservations, just in case. A great selections of entrées, desserts, appetizers, etc. I think the drink is included as well. They are a bit pricey,... More

Are Boma's few African inspired dishes very good - absolutely. Does the wait staff do an outstanding job, all things considered - absolutely. Does a crowded and loud dining hall filled with t-shirt tourists on discount dining plans overstuffing their plates with iceberg lettuce salad, mashed potatoes, mac-n-cheese and brownies set the mood for a $150+ dinner - absolutely not....

This is an excellent resturant. Buffet style food, great choice, steak cooked to perfection. Eat as much as you want, good service, nice atmosphere. Brilliant for kids. Well recomended. Very busy so book in advance. The queue can be quite long at times at the buffet bar. Excellent value.

I am by no means an adventurous eater, but I found a lot of great food on the buffet here! Lots to choose from and everything I tried was good. The atmosphere was great too. This is one of the prettier hotels on the property in my opinion. Definitely don't leave without checking out the animals with night vision goggles... More

We decided to try the dinner buffet at Boma on our recent visit to Disney World, and really enjoyed it. I am not a terribly adventurous eater, but I found many items to be delicious and went back for seconds. For dessert, I had heard many people rave about the zebra domes, and they didn't dissappoint! I don't know how... More
