    Yes CS credits can be used for breakfast items.

    My favorite CS restaurants are:

    MK: CHH, Pecos Bill's
    AK: FlameTree BBQ
    Epcot: really can't go wrong, but I like TangierineCafe
    HS: slim pickings but I would say Starring Rolls

    Your best bet for breakfast QS is the buffet right there at Coronado Springs!

    DTD Wolfgang express is a great CS value on the plan. DH and I had lunch there last week and our bill was $52 for the 2 of us. On the DDP 'free'. The food is awesome and they bring it to you. So it is almost a sit down meal. They refill drinks too. One of our favorite CS places even if we are not on the DDP.

    WPE in the DTD Marketplace also does breakfast:thumbsup2
    We ate there 4 times (3 dinners & 1 breakfast) last week even paying OOP.

    Other CS places we like are Sunshine Seasons in Epcot, CHH in MK and Cooke's in DTD. I have heard great things from friends about Flametree but we don't stay in AK long enough for lunch (if we go at all)

    Here are my favourites by park-

    MK: Pecos Bill
    Epcot: Sunshine Seasons
    DHS: Pizza Planet (mostly for the atmosphere to be honest) or ABC Commissary

    I don't have a favourite for Animal Kingdom because I didn't stay for lunch last time but I'm going to try Yak and Yeti next time

    I totally agree with the below! WGPE (marketplace location) is my absolutely fave. The food is consistently delish every single time. It was the highlight meal of our trip(s)! Never disappoints. GREAT value on the DP!!! Love the meatloaf (my fave), spag/balls, and pizza. Cheesecake is TO DIE FOR.

    MK: Nothing really stands out to me. Maybe Cosmic Rays.
    Epcot: LOOOOVE the french bakery. Their sandwiches are HUGE and absolutely delish! you get a sandwich, drink, and a delish pastry!! pastries are incredible. For one QS credit youre also allowed 3 pastries if you wish!
    Other good options at epcot: sunshine seasons and the fish n' chip place in england.
    HS: nothing stands out to me, at all. If i can, i prefer to starve or just grab a snack to tie me down until our TS ressie.
    AK: Flame tree is good. Seating area sucks thou, cause of the birds.

    Could not agree more! We had a great breakfast there. Uncrowded, good service, everything hot & fresh. Look forward to trying it for lunch next year.

    All of those are great ideas. I like Flame Tree BBQ as best CS in park and Earl Of Sandwich for DTD. If your willing to do an OOP meal is to make a reservation at the Plaza restaurant. For a dollar more than Tomorrowland Terrace 300 feet away, you get an air conditioned sit down more that is better than any other CS in Magic Kingdom.
