Boma – Flavors of Africa: The King of Disney Breakfast Buffets
If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, shouldn’t your choice of breakfast at Walt Disney World be just as important? We think so!
Our team has reviewed some of the best breakfasts at Walt Disney World, including Cape May Cafe’s breakfast buffet. But one of our perennial faves has to be Boma – Flavors of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
Located on the first floor of Jambo House, Boma offers all-you-can-eat African-inspired dishes – and a few American classics – in a dining room designed to evoke an African marketplace.
Guests will dine under thatched roofs and tapestries and amongst colorful stacks of pottery. Some tables are positioned near windows and offer views of the lush landscaping surrounding the Uzima Springs Pool area.
While Boma’s dinner buffet (and its unlimited assortment of Zebra Domes) is offered from 5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at $49 per adult and $29 per child, the breakfast buffet is served from 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and priced at $29 per adult and $17 per child. A 10% discount is available for Disney Visa Cardholders and Annual Passholders.
While Boma offers a walk-up list (based on availability) on the My Disney Experience app, Advance Dining Reservations are encouraged. But if you’re already within that 60-day window, consider using the free TouringPlans Reservation Finder.
Those looking to enjoy breakfast – or a post-Animal Kingdom morning brunch – at Boma will find the following:
- Waffles (Lion King themed!)
- Cinnamon Rolls
- Sticky Buns
- Bacon (A mini-Mount Everest’s worth!)
- Turkey Bobotie (A Boma specialty. Try it. You can thank us later.)
- Deviled Eggs with Smoked Salmon
- Fresh Fruit
- Avocado, Papaya, Grapefruit Salad
- Carved Ham
- Cinnamon-Raisin Bread Pudding (Dessert for breakfast? Don’t mind if we do!)
- Breakfast Potatoes
- Ham & Swiss
- Western with Ham
- Peppers, Onions, & Cheddar
- Egg White with Roasted Red Pepper, Spinach, Feta
- Plant-based Bobotie
- Coconut Steel-cut Oatmeal (Because everything is better with coconut)
- Composed Yogurt Parfait (Props for presentation!)
Boma also offers a variety of cocktails, many of which are made with Disney’s famous POG (pineapple, orange, and guava) juice. A recent addition is a spiked cold brew that comes topped with a Zebra Dome!
Non-alcoholic drinks consist of the usual offerings, as well as a Kenyan press pot coffee, flavored cold brews, lattes, cappuccinos, watermelon lemonade, pomegranate lemonade, and more.
Something else worth mentioning is that of all the buffets at Walt Disney World, Boma isn’t just one of the best but also one of the cleanest.
There is always someone wiping things down and keeping the buffet clean and pristine. We love the pride the staff has for this restaurant and the efforts they go to maintain the guests’ experience throughout the meal.
Again, Boma never disappoints, and a $29 per adult price tag for a delicious all-you-can-eat breakfast with cultural flavors makes this resort restaurant one of Disney World’s best breakfast spots!

We are there last week – first time since December 2014 – we had a fantastic breakfast – booked to go again in a couple of weeks.
Our family lives the Boma breakfast buffet (and POG juice)! We usually do this on our checkout day before driving home to Georgia. Leaving Disney is always sad, so this gives us a fun thing to do that morning & everyone starts the day full with a good breakfast.
I’m not going to lie, your reviews make me horny for food.
