    We just got back from our family vacation to Orlando a few weeks ago. I can’t believe we just missed this! I love those little minions! Nevertheless, the trip was fabulous! I never get to step away from the office at Dish, so it was important I planned a great trip. It’s hard to appeal to everyone in my family since we all differ in age so drastically. I have two sons, one approaching 15 and the other is 8. They don’t agree on much, but they both love Harry Potter. Thus, we decided to plan our trip around the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The trip went over so well that we’ve found ourselves streaming the Harry Potter movies off our Blockbuster@Home service we get through our Dish account just so we can relive it. It’s so fun to say, “I’ve been there!” when something like the joke shop appears! Now I have the undeniable urge to look for Despicable me! They have tons of movies and shows on Blockbuster@Home, so I’m sure I can find it. If only the ride would’ve opened a few weeks sooner, I would’ve been all set!
