Located inside the incredible Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, the restaurant's architecture and atmosphere truly make you feel like you've been transported across the world. The theming is really what makes Boma stand out, and the delicious meals certainly do not disappoint either. By the end of the meal, our froggy bellies are full and satisfied!
Boma is the perfect mix of vibrant African flavors and American classics — even picky-eaters such as Lily found something to enjoy. Plus, we can have an endless amount of our favorite POG juice, which is only offered at very limited locations at Disney World. Boma also became the first full-service buffet to return after Disney World reopened in 2020, as other locations switched to a modified family-style meal. All-you-can-eat, here we come!
Here's everything you know about dining at Boma – Flavors of Africa Restaurant and our froggy favorite dishes. Let's hop to it!
Boma – Flavors of Africa is a table-service restaurant located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. The restaurant is open for breakfast, served from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., and dinner, served from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Advance dining reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 60 days prior. This is a very popular location and reservations go quickly, so we recommend planning well in advance! If you're unable to get a reservation, you may be able to join a Walk-Up list via the My Disney Experience app on the day of, but it's subject to availability.
When we went for breakfast, we had a 9:15 a.m. reservation, and it was fairly empty when we arrived. It became noticeably busier after about 10 a.m. So for breakfast, we recommend having a reservation 9:30 a.m. or earlier if you'd prefer a smaller crowd at the buffet.
There are two sections of the resort, so you'll want to make sure you park or get off the bus at Jambo House. Once you enter the lobby (and take in the gorgeous architecture), head to the right. Boma is located downstairs, so you can use the elevators or go down the large staircase.
Once you are downstairs, check in with the host. We provided a phone number and were told we would receive a text when our table was ready. Our reservation was for 9:20 a.m. and we arrived about 10 minutes early. Sometimes you have to wait a bit, but we got our text right away!
As you enter the dining room, note the incredible theming that transports you into an African marketplace. Lily loved these carved animal statues! Note that, while there are tables by the window, there is no view of the savanna.
Once seated, your server will take your drink orders. We went with the famous POG juice (that's passion fruit-orange-guava) which was delicious, as always! Once drinks are ordered, you are free to head to the buffet.
As with all Disney buffets, there are so many options to choose from! We did a walkthrough to scout out what we wanted to dive into first, and then got started with round one. Yum!
Breakfast at Boma is served from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. It costs $29 per adult and $17 per child, plus tax and tip. The buffet is all-you-can-eat, so you can eat as much as you desire. No judgment! Allergen guides are available upon request.
Aside from POG juice, you could opt for sparkling or still water, watermelon lemonade, cappuccino, latte, espresso, press pot with Joffrey's Kenyan Coffee and a sparkling No-Jito. As part of the 50th-anniversary celebration, try the extra-cost EARidescent Sip-a-bration, which is served in a souvenir 50th celebration cup with a surprise character (and a little bit of magic).
Dinner at Boma is served from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. It costs $49 per adult and $29 per child, plus tax and tip. Dinner is also an all-you-can-eat buffet. Allergen menus are available upon request.
In addition to specialty nonalcoholic drinks (same as listed in the lunch menu), there are specialty cocktails and beers available, as well.
We always love a Disney buffet because we can sample so many delicious foods and go back for seconds (and thirds and so on ... ). A lot of the food is recognizable with a slight twist, which is perfect for young tadpoles to expand their palettes. The Frog Family always leaves Boma very hoppy and full, and we think it's toadally worth the price, especially for breakfast!
