When do they charge your room?

If you are staying onsite and use your MB to charge to the room, do they charge the card on file nightly or the day you check out?
Also, can you charge your dinners on your MB?

It depends. There are 3 level of charge limits Value = $500, Moderate = $1000 and Deluxe = $1500. When you reach these limits your card is charged. If you do not reach these limits your card is charged very early ( 2 - 3 AM) of the morning you are checking out.

Other questions were answered above, but yes, you can charge meals to your room, even counter service food and most snack locations.

Also, at any time you like you can go to the front desk of your resort and pay your accumulated charges to that point. After you pay, your WDW balance resets to zero and begins accumulating again with your next purchase.

About the charge limits - $500 Value, $1000 Moderate, $1500 Deluxe -- as PP wrote, when you reach your limit, your card will be charged and you will be notified. However, after being charged you will begin another cycle with the $500, $1000 or $1500 credit limit -- and this can go on until you check out or reach the credit max of your CC.

Just an FYI, while the moderate limit is $1000 on our last trip when our bill got to over $700, they did charge our card. So, it really just depends on when the front desk plans to put the charges through. We had about 3 days left to go when the charge was put through. So just be prepared if you are using your charge privelege and are nearing the limit, they will put the charges through at any time.

DD is planning on using an empty low limit card $700. Will they allow this? She is staying at WL. She plans on using gift cards to pay down the amount and using her Disney Visa for the park stores and restaurants that offer discounts.

How is your spending limit determined???
Also, if it is going on your CC, I don't understand why one needs to go to the front desk...or is it to have them reset your limit..or is this done automatically....

Not that it matters, I don't see how we would spend $700 a day, even if we are not on a meal plan...
I would just hate to get rejected while in a signature restaurant...

How would this work if we wanted to pay off MB charges with gift cards?

I haven't had gift cards, but I did use my Disney Rewards card to pay off charges. I just went to the front desk and asked for the amount to be added to my account.

When I stayed at a Value, they charged my room to my credit card on file when I checked in. I didn't know this, so when I checked out and planned to use gift cards, I couldn't use them. They re-did everything for me (took it off the cc and used the gift cards) but seemed annoyed with me for not knowing that they expected me to pay for the room when I checked in. It was not a package, but room only with AP rate. I have never paid for my whole stay, upon checking in - anywhere, so next time I will ask first how they plan to bill me.

Where do you usually stay? I travel for work all the time, and always have to pay the balance of the hotel reservation upon check in, plus a courtesy hold for incidentals. Disney is the only place I stay where they don't do a hold for incidentals.

Looking at our most recent AP holder room only confirmation from last November, the email confirmation clearly states the balance was due on the date we checked in, same as always (we've been AP holders since 2011).

I've never stayed anywhere that allowed me to enter my room until e wry night had been paid in full! I've had many room only stays...I either paid in full before arrival, or planned to pay the balance upon arrival.
I've used gift cards as well, but those had to be used every few days. I charged to my room account and then used a few gift cards every 3 days to pay the balance off.
