    We have reservations at Boma. Will we have to pay a parking fee at AKL if we are not staying there and are just going there to have dinner?

    Hey, Jennifer! Sounds like you have a delicious evening planned at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! This is one of my favorite Disney Resort Hotels to stay at or even just visit. While there for your meal at Boma - Flavors of Africa, be sure to step outside to the animal viewing areas. There is a wide variety of animals that call this savanna home. You will find around the viewing areas lots of Cast Members that serve as cultural representatives and are more than eager to share information with you about the animals and also their homeland.

    Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel do have a parking fee added to their guest folio if they park a vehicle overnight at their resort. This parking fee does not apply to guests visiting the resort during the day for dining or shopping. So no worries about this fee for your short visit while dining at the restaurant. You will need to provide your dining confirmation number to the Cast Members stationed at the resort's entrance gate, so keep that number handy.

    I hope you have a magical evening at Boma - Flavors of Africa! Be sure to try their many soups and save room for the wildest dessert on the savanna - Zebra Domes. Oh my goodness, I could eat a dozen of those right now! Thanks so much for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
