The restaurant itself is beautiful! The decorations are nice, but not overly done. There is plenty of space between tables. Additionally, the buffet tables are well-spaced and kept clean.

Additionally,,,,we were chosen to be the Family of the Day!!

We were led into the restaurant by the staff with music and dancing! We were the first family in for dinner and then all of the other patrons were seated after we were. It was really fun! See the video below!

The Buffet

There was a wide variety of food for all types of eaters, even the pickiest eaters!

My seventeen-year-old is adventurous and willing to try about any food! My husband and two of the other teens are not so willing.

When my seventeen-year-old and I were in Disney in March of 2019 we tried Sanaa since it was not a buffet and we knew the rest of our family going with us in November of 2019 were being pushed to their limits of trying new things with a buffet! We made a very good choice!

The food was very good, but there were many unique items on the buffet which were a bit more than what some of our party was willing to try. However, there was also plenty of food for all of our picky eaters and the toddlers with us that no one left hungry!

There were even Mickey treats! I’m not sure what they were, but they were certainly adorable (and were not eggs…even though the kids thought they were!)

Needless-to-say there was a TON of food! It was a great variety and was presented well. The atmosphere was beautiful. It was done well, but not overly done!

Teen Favorites…

My seventeen-year-old son, who will try and eat about anything, said that his favorite part of Boma was that “there was such a wide variety of food, the food was such a high quality, and the atmosphere was just so energetic and playful.”

My sixteen-year-old son, who often does not enjoy foods out of his norm, said “It’s alright. It’s not as good as Whispering Canyon, but it’s good.” (Whispering Canyon is the table service restaurant at Wilderness Lodge.

My nineteen-year-old daughter, who is a picky eater, said “It was pretty good. I liked the wide variety.”

  1. BOMA is one of my absolute fave restaurants at Disney!!! The food and variety was amazing!! I got all four kids… even the younger ones who were 3 and 5 at the time, to try and LIKE all kinds of exotic foods!! Yum!

    1. If you have not tried Tusker House, try that one too! It has a fun variety of food (and characters typically)!

  2. Omg! You can see the animals from the lodge!! That is so cool. Perfect spot to drink morning coffee and watch the animals graze.

    1. Some of the food choices are similar. There are no characters at Boma and Boma is a little fancier where Tusker House is more festive. I think there is a better variety of kid-friendly food at Tusker House, but both are good!

  3. I really want to stay at the Animal Kingdom lodge! I think I’m going to look into it! We will be on the gulf coast of Florida in May, maybe we can go to Orlando for a night or two! I hope so! Thanks for the great photos and info!

  4. I like that they actually had cultural dishes and not just the standard generic buffet food! Would make it an interesting food experience for someone that likes to try new foods.

    1. It absolutely was! There was a great variety and it was very unique, though they also had items my pickiest child and my picky grandson would eat!

  5. What an amazing post! Boma looks like an excellent place to enjoy some delicious food! The pictures are so awesome, thank you for sharing.

    1. It was super fun! Our kids thought it was pretty neat that we were picked to be “the family of the day!”
