Where are the best Disney World buffets? It's a good question with a yummy answer. I know what you're thinking: A buffet, yuck. But reserve your judgment until you've tried one -- Walt Disney World's buffets may surprise you.

The most interesting of the Disney World buffets is the breakfast and dinner at Boma in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Boma offers African inspired dishes like Couscous Marrakesh and FuFu (sweet and mashed potatoes with coriander and cinnamon). This is a meal is for the adventurous palate. It has flavors that aren't your typical American meat and potatoes.

The most inexpensive Disney World buffet may be the least attended. It's located in Disney's Fort Wilderness Campground at the Trail's End Restaurant. The buffet serves down home southern styled items. Fried chicken is the star at lunch. At dinner there is a full out barbecue including ribs, carved meats and all the fixins. The price for an adult is less than $20.00. For Disney World that's a bargain. It's a little off the beaten path, but it's worth a try.

For a meal that will thrill the Princess in your life, check out 1900 Park Fare in the Grand Floridian for a Supercalifragilistic Breakfast or Cinderella's Happily Every After Dinner. During your meals, Disney Princesses and Princes will come to your table for pictures and autographs Oh, yeah, the food is good too.

The best Disney World buffet in the theme parks has to be the character meals at the Crystal Palace in The Magic Kingdom. Winnie the Pooh and friends are the hosts of a buffet that features American cuisine in a light, airy and even whimsical restaurant. There is even a special "buffet" for kids.

Disney World has some great restaurants, and yes, some of them are old-fashioned, all-you-can-eat buffets.
