    Are there GF options available at the Animal kingdom lodge Boma restaurant for breakfast?

    Jambo, Evangelina! Thanks so much for visiting planDisney with this delicious question. Like Timon and Pumbaa, I'll be a loyal sidekick to help investigate your allergy-friendly dining options at Walt Disney World Resort. We've got this!

    You are in for an amazing start to your Disney day if you begin with the savanna's most bountiful breakfast--Boma - Flavors of Africa. This all-you-care to enjoy buffet at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge offers traditional breakfast fare and a great range of African-inspired choices. The turkey bobotie is not to be missed, and my husband is always delighted to start his day with the assortment of pastries and a large amount of coffee. 

    Walt Disney World does a really excellent job handling food allergies, and you'll be able to enjoy fantastic meals and snacks all around the resort. When you make your breakfast reservation, be sure to include your special dietary request. You can speak with a Cast Member to book, or reserve online and simply select the prompt. I'm happy to report that there are many gluten-free options at Boma (including the aforementioned bobotie)! Upon your arrival, let the Cast Member checking you in know about your allergy, even if you noted it on the reservation. They will be happy to provide a copy of the restaurant's Allergen Guide, which will indicate which options are appropriate for you.

    I also recommend asking to chat with the chef or another special diets-trained Cast Member if you have questions or want some clarification on specific dishes. I haven't personally needed gluten-free options at Boma, but in other locations at Walt Disney World where my daughter needed this accommodation, everyone we've spoken with has been wonderful. They will confirm which options on the buffet are safe for someone eating gluten-free and can also have some dishes prepared if need be. You won't feel like you're missing out at all!

    Evangelina, I always believe in starting off the day with a healthy breakfast, so I hope you enjoy lots of wonderful fare at Boma on your next trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! Thanks again for stopping by planDisney and please don't hesitate to reach out with more questions if we can help.

    Hakuna Matata!
