I then had to go back to the kitchen and ok the charge - it was very embarrassing. It was then I learned Disney has set a limit on the amount you can charge to your room based on what category of resort you are staying in - apparently it's $500 for values (even family suites for which you are paying close to deluxe prices), $1000 for moderates and $1500 for deluxe. So it may not be advert snobbery, but Disney is making assumptions about our economic wherewithal based on the category of resort we are staying in.
This really frustrates me, I remember we were staying at POFQ in 2 rooms without a dining plan, absolutely everything we purchased/ate in Disney was charged to one room, we spent close to $3,000 on food/drinks/gifts etc that trip and had to have the limit increased via a phone call when purchasing some items in Epcot - I'm pretty certain thy gave us a larger increase during that call when my father confirmed the credit card they were charging had over $10,000 worth of available credit.
