Tips for a Magical Party/F.A.Q.

Our Fairy Godmother does her best to make sure your party is as magical as possible! Here are some tips and tricks you can do to make it the best day ever!

  • Plan to have the character(s) arrive at least 1 hour into the party. This allows for any late guests to arrive so that everyone can get time with the character(s) and experience the fun activities we have planned!

  • To best prep for the character(s)' arrival, make sure to have open space for activities and a table for any applicable table top activities.

  • We hope our visits are the highlight of your event, and may even be the big surprise for the birthday child. Please note that surprise visits from our characters can cause the children to be starstruck, and may take a while to warm up to our character. To get the most out of your visit, drop hints to the birthday child or ask our Fairy Godmother for fun ideas!

  • To ensure the safety of your guests and others at pool parties, please make sure that all children dry off before meeting the character. (Swimming mermaids are an exception!)

  • Each party has a personalized schedule for the character and their attendant to follow. This allows them to maximize their time at your party and give you time to relax and enjoy the character's visit! 

    • All parties include a complimentary coronation ceremony or superhero oath ceremony immediately following singing Happy Birthday. We place this at the end of the visit to allow for a smooth transition out of the party. Please let us know if you would like this ceremony to be done at a different time of the party!
