    We have reservations for the buffet at the Animal Kingdom Hotel. My 8 year old grandson is avery adventurous eater and will be pretty angry if he is limited to the kids' food. Will he have access to the full buffet?

    Hi, Sarah! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for bringing us your question. 

    Sarah, it sounds like you are planning a visit to my favorite restaurant in all of the Walt Disney World Resort; Boma- Flavors of Africa! Just thinking about Boma gives me a rumbly in my tumbly, as Pooh would say. From the Coconut-Chicken-Curry Soup to the Spice-crusted Beef Sirloin, this restaurant will delight your taste buds like no other place you have tried before. I can almost guarantee it! 

    I have good news for you, Sarah! Your adventurous eater will be able to enjoy absolutely anything that he wishes when he visits. And there is a lot! Be sure he saves his appetite to try it all. Oh, and make sure he leaves room for dessert. I have two words to remember: Zebra Domes. You can thank me later! 

    While visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, be sure to explore the grounds. This resort is a destination on its own. The savannah’s where you can enjoy the animals are breathtaking and there are even resort activities that are exclusive to this resort that visiting guests can enjoy while there. My kids loved the bead-collecting educational activity where they got to learn about Africa from a local Cast Member, then add to their string of memories a special bead from those activities. And best of all, this is all free of charge! 

    I hope you have a wild time! Be sure to enjoy some zebra domes for me.
