    Hi, Mariela!   What floor you are on in any hotel is just personal preference.   I like first floor rooms just because I do not want to have to wait for elevators or take the steps.   I used to like the first floor when we had a stroller for my kids, and it was just easier to be there, but now I've gotten used to it and that's where we prefer.

    A room on an upper floor will be a bit quieter because you won't have as much foot traffic outside of your room.   An advantage of the very top floor is you will avoid any chance of a noisy family above you that has kids jumping off the beds or running around all night long.   My last stay was at Coronado Springs where I stayed on the 4th floor (the top floor of that building) and I didn't hear one sound all night long - perfect for a relaxing vacation!

    Now to your Extra Magic Hours question - parks due tend to fill up, especially later in the afternoons when it has Extra Magic Hours.    However, if you already have dining reservations, just go with it!   You will have a difficult time changing your times at this point and since you will be calling it a night by 8:00 p.m. anyway, you will be fine.  

    You are on your way to a fun vacation, Mariela!   Have fun!
