Boma, one of my favorite restaurants of all time at Walt Disney World will be offering some wonderful selections this year fro Easter and Mother’s Day. According to Disney, it’s not too early to book your breakfast/brunch reservations for one of the most popular restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort – Boma – Flavors of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.
The restaurant will be open 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on both holidays (April 20 for Easter, May 11 for Mother’s Day). They reopen for dinner from 4:30-9:30 p.m. But you know how much mom loves a special start to her day, like a cup of Kenyan AA coffee, tropical juice and an expansive brunch buffet that includes fresh fruit, salads, carving stations, smoked salmon, charcuterie, omelets, pastries and all sort of South African-inspired dishes such as bobotie, a kind of South African quiche.
After breakfast, stroll outside for a look at the beautiful savannah, where giraffes, zebras and other African wildlife put on a show sure to make mom smile. The generous Boma – Flavors of Africa buffet is one of our favorites, with a little something for everyone, like this easy, refreshing salad that’s a true taste of Florida.
Cost is $21.99, $11.99 ages 3 to 11. For reservations, visit www.disneyworld.com/dine or call 407-WDW-DINE.
