    I see that Boma is open. Is Animal Kingdom Lodge also open to see it and the safari look-out?

    Jambo, Karen! Welcome back to planDisney!

    Oh boy! I'm so excited to hear that your trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth is only a few weeks away. The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration makes it feel like you're just about to bump into magic around every corner! Make sure that you take some time to experience the Beacons of Magic in each of the parks, which light up the night in new and delightful ways. Not only that, but the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival will be in full bloom by the time you visit! You won't want to miss sampling the outdoor kitchens or discovering the character topiaries (Kermit is my favorite!). 

    Just like you, I'm so happy to hear that Boma - Flavors of Africa is open in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! This is one of my absolute favorite resorts to visit and explore, from the exotic animals to the delectable dining. Your trip is sure to be an extra special one! In order to visit a Disney Resorts Collection hotel that you aren't currently staying at as a Guest, I have a few tips for you. First, you may want to consider making an advance dining reservation at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. You can choose from Boma - Flavors of Africa, Jiko - The Cooking Place, or even Sanaa! You may also want to make a mobile order using the My Disney Experience app for a snack or drink from The Mara. Guests are also able to travel to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge using bus transportation from any of the parks!

    Speaking of the My Disney Experience app, take some time to explore it prior to your arrival! Not only will you be able to mobile order food, but you can also view park maps and check wait times for attractions. It feels a bit like holding a magic wand in your hand, unlocking everything that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer!

    I hope I was able to help you with your question today, Karen. If anything else pops up, please visit us again!

    Hakuna Matata!
