Love them or hate them? That’s the question! Buffets are returning to Disney World with the reopening of this restaurant.
Clearly buffets are not the most hygienic experience at Disney (or anywhere else for that matter). Because of this, Disney World temporarily suspended them during the initial reopening phase.
Some restaurants that offered buffets have not reopened yet, and those that have are now all-you-can enjoy plates. Restaurants like Tusker House, Crystal Palace, and Hollywood & Vine are all open again but do not offer buffets.
However, Disney has been moving out of that initial reopening phase rapidly. Like many other things that have returned in recent months, could buffets be next?
The restaurant will reopen on Friday, August 20 with reservations opening up on Wednesday, August 18.
In the past, Disney has typically announced restaurant reopenings with details on menu items and how the food will be served. However, that is not the case with Boma. All they mentioned on their social media was that the restaurant would be reopening soon. It was apparently not worthy of a blog update, which I beg to differ!
Additionally, the Boma page on the Disney website still mentions the fact that the food is served buffet-style. While this could be a matter of simply not updating the website, it could also mean there was no need to update it at all!
Buffets have returned to Disneyland Resort, and we figured it was inevitable at Disney World. You can read more about that HERE.
Reports are floating that Boma will, in fact, serve food buffet-style. It could be they quietly want to see how buffets go before making any big announcements.
We will be sure to keep an eye on Disney media channels before Friday to see if there are any official announcements regarding the return of buffets.
