So what's the difference between us and all those other companies? The major difference is that we are interactive entertainment which means we actually play with your kids while staying in character and looking the part. Even our presentational activities like story time include songs, questions, call & response throughout to keep children engaged.
In our many years of experience and Disney parks training, we have found that the formula for working with kids is connection, preparation, and flexibility. Our cast is trained in activities that can fill 4 hours. Our party offerings only go to 2 hours, though, as that ensures a full energy performance for the full booked time, allows room for the character or guests to decide in a moment at the event if it's time to play a scavenger hunt instead of sitting for a magic show, and gives you options for your next booking.
Each performer is carefully chosen for her talents in singing and acting, experience working with children, reliable and trustworthy work ethic, and for her dreams. Our performers are like true princesses - gentle, patient, and full of ambition. They go on to Broadway, touring and regional musicals, television shows, and more. It's important to us to not just have good performers but amazing people (inside and out) in the cast. Also each performer only plays the role she is suited for so as to ensure the most genuine character experience for your child.
Our prompt and honest communication may seem like the cherry on top, but we believe that should be the foundation of all companies. If you have any further questions, please take a look at our frequently asked questions below. We're happy to answer any additional questions you have.
Our most popular package includes interactive story time and sing-a-long, simple face painting, mini magic show, royalty lessons and dancing, group games, picture, and "happy birthday". We also have a Makeover Party with runway show, Superhero Party with obstacle course, Race Car Party with hot wheels tracks, face painters, and more!
We understand that each party is different. What works for a curious group of 3 year olds won't work for an enthusiastic group of 6 years olds, so each party is fully customizable. On our booking page you'll see a list of our activity offerings. Feel free to note any activity requests you feel will best fit your child and their friends or leave it blank and we'll make suggestions based on your party details.
On the day of the event, our performers will have supplies for every activity including the ones that were note requested so they're ready for anything. They'll communication with you and the birthday child throughout the event to ensure everyone has a magical time.

The majority of our activity offerings are not gender specific. From the mini magic show and story time to the fun group games, we have something for everyone. If you are concerned about the boys feeling not included, we can eliminate the "Princess Dance" and the "Royalty Lessons" which include things like how to curtsey/bow, how to wave, and how to dance.
The most popular offerings we have for boys are the Race Car Party Package with hot wheels track building time and cars themed games, our Superhero Package with obstacle course and hero lessons, and our Snow Queen & Snow Princess package with Frozen story telling and singing.

For an additional fee, we can bring your character to life. Several of our current character offerings were made a reality because of a request. Email us at least 4 weeks in advance, if you're interested in a character we do not currently offer.
As soon as possible. Truly. We're not just saying that to get your business; we book up. Our most popular party time is Saturday. Some parents book 3 months in advance to guarantee their time. To ensure quality, we have a limited number of costumes and performers, so when it's booked, you'll have to choose an alternate time or character. We recommend booking at least 4 weeks out from your party date. Also booking early gives you peace of mind knowing that piece of the party puzzle is checked off.

Once your deposit and Booking Form are complete, we will email you a confirmation email with all your party details. By completing a deposit, the client agrees to the terms & conditions of the Client Contract & Policies. View our Client Contract & Policies here. Your balance is due in cash on the day of the party to the performer. We request that you have your balance and any gratuity safely concealed in an unsealed envelope in order to maintain the magic and hide the transaction from curious eyes.
The package prices do not include gratuity for the performer. If you are happy with their performance, then you are welcome to tip. Any gratuity is GREATLY appreciated as it lets the performer know you had a wonderful time! We recommend a standard 20% gratuity of the total which is about $40 per performer per hour.
We are in the office Monday through Friday 9:00am-6:00pm. The best way to reach us is through email as we are a small business so we only have one phone line.
