    Hi We are planning a trip for 2024,staying at AKL,we are plan to book Boma, we are a family of 5, but our children are very picky eaters. Can we book Boma for my wife and I, and still bring our kids to the table if they are not eating.THX

    Welcome back to planDisney!

    Sounds like you are going to have a wild time on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation next year. I know what it is like to have a little picky eater cub, but as we like to say, hakuna matata, which means no worries! 

    Boma – Flavors of Africa is a great choice for kids! It feels like you are off on an African adventure. Now, Daniel, there are some delicious delicacies on the buffet menu that I know you and your wife will enjoy. There are also some tried and true children’s favorites offered that even the pickiest eater may like. Even if your children would prefer not to eat the buffet, you will need to include them in your reservation. I confirmed with a Cast Member that you should also expect to pay for each child. Both the Cast Member and I recommend that you speak with the Cast Member when you check in for your reservation and again with your server to see if they can offer some options that your children might prefer. They will do their best to work with you to make your experience a roaring good time!

    Daniel, I have a top tip for you and your pride. Be sure to arrive early for your reservation using Walt Disney World Resort Transportation so that you can enjoy the gorgeous Animal Kingdom Lodge lobby and have a moment to view the beautiful savannah. You might even spot a giraffe, zebra or gazelle! Wildlife Field Guides, to help you identify the animals you see, are available from the Front desk.

    I hope this information has been helpful to you, Daniel.  Rather than saying goodbye, we would rather say "Kwaherini" which means "go well" in Swahili, and we want to help you “go well” into your vacation, so let us know if you have other questions.

    Kwaherini and see ya’ real soon,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
