When Boma first opened before Disney offered the DDP we ate there and loved it. It was a great value for breakfast and dinner. Over the years we tired of it and for the past 2 years we avoided restaurants with buffet meals. Last year we gave Boma a try again. We all loved it. We basically ate the soups and salads, a little fish and vegetables. I didn't,t try the sausage and lentil soup but my husband and ds loved it. I got the recipe online and now I make it at least once a month. We loved the bread pudding and the fresh fruits for desert. We eat very little processed food and enjoy whole grains. Boma is the only buffet restaurant we will eat at.

We love BOMA, and, in your case, I think the big difference is that at LTT there isn't anything there you couldn't have at home. But the food at BOMA is very unique and not something you'd come across every day.

Ditto- we go to dinner ever time. I have younger kids ( started going to Boma when they were 6,8,9) and we enjoy the buffet because it is not the typical Disney buffet and we all can find something we enjoy.

It is the only restaurant in all the World that my 4 kids beg to go to on every trip. Both breakfast and dinner are unique and delish!

Be careful about Boma. It is a great breakfast. Dinner is questionable for picky eaters.

My family has 2 picky eaters. They like LLT for dinner it is plain and a Thanksgiving style meal.

I liked Boma but they refuse to return for dinner & did not like the food.

They will eat breakfast at Boma.

My family prefers LLT for dinner.

Good Luck & Have a Magical Vacation !!

I couldn't disagree more. I think Boma is great, and it's a must do for us. I thought the food quality was great, lots of unique but also lots of everyday stuff. I loved the atmosphere, I was very comfortable etc.

at five per night.) Bring out the ear plugs, as it does get REALLY noisy.

I couldn't disagree more. To me it is still a buffet. I have yet to experience any buffet food offerings that I would label as great, anywhere. I personally think the food is average, the theming is neat, but very loud. And I just am not overly thrilled with having to stand in a long line to put food on my plate. I also always wonder if little Jimmy (or for that matter big Jimmy) washed their hands after using the restroom and then holding the utensil I will be holding after them. Just not overly excited about buffets I guess.

When you say 'our' what does that mean?? Just curious.

We love Boma..have yet to have a bad or even mediocre meal there. The one thing I really don't care for? Zebra Domes!!! And everyone else loves 'em. Oh well.

I seldom stand in a very long line for anything. The meat line tends to get a bit longish, but that's pretty much because it's a carving station. Everything else is pretty open, so you can just wait for an opening and jump in. No need to stay in one line from start to finish!!

I am a very choosy eater. I don't like highly seasoned food, or sauces. But, I really enjoy eating at Boma. And my dh, who does like all varieties of food, loves it there as well.

But, I love LTT... I don't eat dinner there anymore. I much prefer lunch. The lunch is wonderful...I had the best turkey plate there. Like having Thanksgiving dinner!!!

It is one of my favorite restaurants at WDW and I have eaten at most of them multiple times. I am from NYC and live in Boston and go out to eat all the time at unique, great restaurants. I think Boma is fantastic!

Not a *must* but we work it in(for dinner) when we can. I realize soup doesn't sound very exciting, but the soups there are the highlight for me. Other stuff is good too. I'm not a big dessert guy, but the selections there are very nice, and even the pickiest eater would enjoy the cookies and brownies.

I'd love to try the breakfast at Boma, but alas, no one else in my group eats before lunch.
