Boma – Flavors of Africa reopens Aug. 20; reservations will be available starting Aug. 18.

Walt Disney World is still in the final stages of its phased reopening, with the final resorts set to open between Aug. 26 and Dec. 9 and several shows, attractions, and restaurants awaiting their reopening dates.

Up until now, however, every buffet restaurant on Disney Property that has reopened has not done so as a buffet. Instead, Disney has opened them as a prix fixe family-style experience.

But that all changes when Boma – Flavors of Africa reopens this Friday at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge in its former buffet form.
