I am so excited because I finally completed my DAK Dining experience!
Until now, I’ve eaten at every Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge restaurant, except for Boma – The Flavors of Africa.
I finally was able to cross it off my Disney Bucket List by eating dinner there with my DCP friends. 🙂
Boma is located downstairs in the main Jambo house. It is across from the fancier DAK restaurant, Jiko.
It is a buffet-style dining experience billed as ‘family-friendly’. It’s not a character meal.
Once you are seated, you are free to get up and try any of the extensive African-themed cuisine. There is a meat carving station, a cold dish area, a soup area, and also a bread sampling station with several sauces to try.
I absolutely loved the cashew crusted salmon on the left!
People are obsessed with Zebra domes – the striped round dessert. It is like white mouse covered in gelatin? I know people who will go to Boma JUST for this dessert – but I wasn’t convinced! haha
My favorite dessert was the coffee flavored whipped cream in the chocolate shell! Yum!
The meal at Boma was delicious. I won’t lie though, I actually think I prefer Sanaa. It’s a very similar dining experience, but Sanaa is more intimate and the restaurant has better theming. Boma is a huge restaurant seating more than 1,000 guest a day.

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
