Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day Extended Hours for Breakfast at Boma – Flavors of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge
Looking ahead, it’s not too early to book your breakfast/brunch reservations for one of the most popular restaurants at Walt Disney World ResortBoma – Flavors of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge.

The restaurant will be open 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on both holidays (April 20 for Easter, May 11 for Mother’s Day). They reopen for dinner from 4:30-9:30 p.m. But you know how much mom loves a special start to her day, like a cup of Kenyan AA coffee, tropical juice and an expansive brunch buffet that includes fresh fruit, salads, carving stations, smoked salmon, charcuterie, omelets, pastries and all sort of South African-inspired dishes such as bobotie, a kind of South African quiche.

After breakfast, stroll outside for a look at the beautiful savannah, where giraffes, zebras and other African wildlife put on a show sure to make mom smile.

The generous Boma – Flavors of Africa buffet is one of our favorites, with a little something for everyone, like this easy, refreshing salad that’s a true taste of Florida.

Cost is $21.99, $11.99 ages 3 to 9. For reservations, visit www.disneyworld.com/dine or call 407-WDW-DINE.

  • Do you have any other information on Easter brunches (kid-friendly and reasonably priced) in the Disney area or at the resorts? It is very hard to research Easter brunch in Florida while I am in Wisconsin.
    Thanks,

  • Hello Pam,

    I would like to request the recipe for Flame-broiled New York Strip Steak with Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Seasonal Vegetables topped with Blue Cheese Butter from the Hollywood Studio’s SyFy Drive Inn. I would mostly love the recipe of the blue cheese butter. We had amazing meals when we were there last year but that steak and butter that topped it was a major high light of mine!

    Thank You!

  • I love bobotie, however I’d characterize it more as a meatloaf than a quiche. Will they also have Tomato Bredie? That’s my all time favorite!

  • Next to Sanaa this is my favorite restaurant in all of WDW.
