Party Tips & Requirements

Arrival


We recommend booking the performer to arrive at least 15-30 minutes after the party is scheduled to begin. This is to ensure that any party guests that may be stuck in traffic won't miss the magic!

Once the character arrives please do not bring your children out to see the character, seeing their favourite character arrive in a car will break the magic. The character will knock on your door when they are ready to come inside.

In the case that the client does not answer the door, the performer will ring your phone three times. If the door is not answered within 15 minutes, the performer has the right to leave. Any lost time due to the client delaying will not be made up for. If the client does not answer the door the client will not be refunded.




Outdoor Parties


In hot weather, shade and water must be provided for the characters. Have water available for the character to drink throughout your party. The wigs and costumes are extremely hot and our characters need to stay hydrated. In cold weather an area shielded from the wind must be provided. The area that is provided for the characters must NOT be muddy or wet. In the event of rain, please have a backup plan settled as we will not perform in poor weather conditions.




Indoor Parties


Venues must have air conditioning. In hot weather the A/C must be set a few degrees cooler than usual (keep in mind whilst you may be comfortable, the performers are dressed head to toe in wigs and hot undergarments). Please also have water available for the character to drink throughout your party.




Food


Please ensure that you serve your food before we arrive or after our exit and leave the cake until the end. This is to ensure the children do not become distracted and miss out on something exciting! Any damages to costumes due to food, will be covered by the client. Please do not have any foods out while the character is present.




Equipment


Please have a power outlet available for us to use for our speakers. If there is not one available close to where you are having us do the activities please let us know in advance so that we can organise our Cordless Alternatives.

Make sure to have a chair set up for each character, a table and a cleared area for the children to sit in front of the character for games and performance.
we reccomend moving aside any small furiture to create more room for activities.




Misbehaving Children


Be available to aid the performer if issues arise with children misbehaving. If children are misbehaving, please have the parent/guardian remove their child from the activity until they have calmed down. You as the hostess/host, or the child’s parent, are responsible for any behavior problems or issues during a Princess Princess Party. Our Princesses will not assume responsibility for providing any disciplinary action during a party. In order to continue to deliver and offer a magical and wonderful experience for your Princess Party, our Princesses will need to focus on the Little Princesses that are following the rules and behaving properly during the party. As for adults attending a Princess Party, it is up to the hostess/host to maintain a "Princessey" atmosphere. The Princesses are not able to talk or sing over disruptive attendees.




Departure


Unfortunately there is always the time where the character needs to go. This can be an upsetting time for the children. To ensure that the children are not too disappointed, make sure to plan an exciting activity to occur directly after the character's departure. Please ensure that the children do not follow the character out to their car as this will ruin the magic!




Other Entertainment


Our Princesses cannot perform with un-approved Character or Entertainment companies in the area. Contact us if you are booking more than one entertainment company to find out if they are on our approved list. If you do not let us know and we arrive with an un-approved company present, Our characters have the right to leave, with no refund to the client.
