Animal kingdom lodge dining

Dinning at the Animal Kingdom lodge is a wonderful experience; a real culinary adventure. There is something for everyone, and as you would expect from a Disney hotel, children are thoroughly spoilt.

Eat breakfast at The Mara where you can pick up a selection of bagels, pastries plus cereal and fruits, or take a trip to the Boma restaurant. This self service buffet style restaurant provides a feast that will more than keep you going until lunch time. The safari breakfast consists of eggs bacon and hash browns and if that isn’t’ enough try the wonderful pancakes with delightful maple syrup that is to die for.

When you are not the theme parks, the Animal Kingdom lodge serves food all day long. Try a delicious club sandwich made from thick bread rolls and juicy chicken breast. Or call in at the Mara for a wonderful section of fast food, from burgers and pizza, to healthy wraps and fresh fruit salad. And if that is not enough go to the Boma restaurant for meal that will more than likely take the rest of the afternoon to consume.

In evenings take a trip to the Jiko cooking place which features cuisines from around the world and a south African wine list which would put most exclusive restaurant to shame. Don’t worry about the children, there are always favourites like peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches on offer.

The Jinko  Disney dining experience was designed by Jeffrey Beers and inspired by the Disney movie the lion king. Twin wood burning ovens are the centrepiece of the open kitchen and the 235 seat dinning room. However for a more private affair there is a secluded dinning area – to seat 40.

Once you  have complete your animal kingdom lodge meal take coffee in the seductive Victoria falls bar overlooking the Boma. You can take dessert here if you wish, sample more African wine or relax with a gourmet coffee. With the adjacent hotel lobby lounge catering for children with large and tastefully integrated TVs playing Disney Cartoons, you know that you children will be in good hands.

Whist Disney’s Animal Kingdom lodge has so much to offer, my favourite eating place will always be the Boma. The lively and yet restful interior and the friendly staff coming from many African nations just cannot be beaten the food is some of the best ever tasted. The African  inspired food with delicious marinated meats and accompaniments is heaven for adults and the separate children’s buffet means that there is plenty for children to sample. Go to Boma when visiting the Animal Kingdom Lodge or any Disney theme park as it is an experience that you and your family will never forget. And when you are there, don’t forget to try the mouth watering Zebra domes. A chocolate mousse desert that will have you coming back for more.
