    Hi, we are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and wondered if you have to make a reservation for the Boma breakfast buffet? Will we be able to 'walk in'?

    Hi, Melissa!

    Boma - Flavors of Africa is a wonderful buffet dining experience at the beautiful Animal Kingdom Lodge. Reservations are highly suggested as this is a popular dining location.

    If you do not want to commit to a dining reservation, you can always try to walk-up, and see what your wait time would be if there is any availability. If you go either very early or on the later side, towards the end of the breakfast hours, you might have better luck securing a last minute table.

    If you find you simply cannot get seated, you can always head to The Mara, the Animal Kingdom Lodge quick service location, for breakfast. While it is quick service, they serve a full breakfast so there should be something for everyone in your party.

    I hope you enjoy your stay at this unforgettable resort. Plan plenty of time for exploring and relaxing at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
