It's hard to find a decent meal at Disney without reminiscing of high school cafeteria lunch so we tried Boma with certain expectations given the price of entry. For one, they charge kids over 9 as adults, so my eleven year old who ate mac and cheese and a side of rice cost 46 dollars. Then my 5 year old... More

Great choices, very ethnic and creative!!! We came back to Disney last week and one of our "must do's" was to go to BOMA! My how it... More

We love Boma! We eat there every time we visit Disney World. We have eaten breakfast and dinner both. I don't believe they serve lunch. The staff as always was very good and friendly. I would argue that this is the best buffet on Disney property. We ate breakfast this time while we were there. It was delicious as always.... More

We were staying in the hotel and thought we would eat here as part of our Disney Dining plan. BEWARE - as they take two seating points per person for this restaurant, and frankly, I wish we hadn't wasted our points on it. The servers were, well - sullen and not particularly friendly until we tipped them then they were... More

For $50 for adults and $25 for kids, I would expect a lot more. The soups were all good, but the rest only so-so. I expected actual African dishes on the entree menu and was greatly disappointed. Just standard salmon, pork, and steak you would find at any buffet. Desserts were a disappointment (other than the zebra domes). We had... More

This is the only Disney property restaurant we ate in on our recent visit to Orlando. We were there years ago and I was dreaming of returning. The generous buffet is loaded with a variety of unique (but not weird) dishes you just won't find anywhere else. It's pricey but well worth a splurge. Go on a very empty stomach!

This is our second time at Boma, it was as wonderful as we remembered, this is a perfect way to try all the wonderful dishes Africa has to offer in one place. This is a buffet, with that said you do need a reservation and it is on the Disney Dinning Plan, I don't think you would regret trying this... More

Have been a DVC member since 99. Every time I'm at Disney I'm sure to make plans to dine at Boma. The buffet is amazing. Its @ least 100 ft long. The variety of food items is sure to please everyone. As with all Disney restaurants reservations are a must. Ther is a great bar that over looks the restaurant... More

Went to this restaurant with family and friends to celebrate my birthday. Food was devious and presented beautifully. There was something for everyone. Choices were limited for someone with a dairy allergy.
