Again there is a $100 cancellation fee once you have reserved and booked a party date.

Should I give gratuity to my performer?
Yes absolutely! Our performers love getting tipped for the work that they do to make your child’s birthday special! Gratuities range from $25 and up and are not required yet greatly appreciated!
What happens at the party and what is important for me to know?
The Amazing Fairytale Parties characters are all professional entertainers that go through a detailed screening & training process. The character will park discreetly down the street and make a grand entrance to surprise the birthday child, meet & greet with the child & their guests and then begin the activities in the party package you purchased in the order the activities appear on our pricing page. Please allow the performer to do their normal routine without attempting to change things. We are professionals and this will guarantee your party to be a success. We always recommend that you bring out the Birthday Cake not long before your performer exits the party so that they may lead the Happy Birthday Song at the end before they make their exit. You are welcome to take as many photographs as you like throughout the party and have time for posed photography towards the end as well. Please know that if their is an emergency with your performers arrival time they will contact you directly. Please do not be concerned if you do not see them parked outside your party location before your party begins, as they are parked discreetly down the street so as not to ruin the surprise. Please do not call our offices to confirm your parties on the weekend as it is closed. We confirm all parties at the time of booking and 7 days before the event. If you do not receive your confirmation please do NOT call but please DO email our offices at email@example.com as we receive a high volume of calls daily. Please do not call our emergency hotline unless you have booked a party with us and you are having a real emergency on your party date. You are not officially scheduled on a party until we confirm availability and we have received full payment at the time of booking via our booking department and have received the signed agreement that will be sent to you at the time of booking.
What happens if my performer is ill or running late?
We require all of our performers to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time so that they may have a moment to prepare and enter your party right on time as scheduled. They park discreetly down the street if possible so as not to ruin the magic created for the children. Occasionally things do happen along the way, accidents, natural disasters, traffic, and performers do get ill. If your performer is running late for any reason, they will stay the scheduled amount of time of the booking from the time they arrive. They are trained to contact you if they are going to be running late due to unforeseen circumstances out of the performers control. If your performer is to fall ill, we will make it our priority to schedule an available performer on your party. If there is no available performer we will give you the option of refunding you 100% of your party or rescheduling your visit to another date within a 3 month period.
What if I have an emergency the day of party?
If you have an emergency on the day of your party please call our offices to be forwarded to the on-call party coordinator.
What sets you apart from the competition?
Amazing Fairytale Parties is Fully Licensed & Insured. Our performers are employees that are covered by Workmen’s Compensation. Amazing Fairytale Parties offers the highest quality standard and reliability. For the safety of your children all of our performers are carefully screened and selected. Our costumes & wigs are all custom made by our very own seamstress and designers so that every detail is spectacular.
Where do you recommend I hold my party?
Due to the expensive nature and high quality of our costumes and wigs, our preference is to hold parties at locations such as: a home environment, our boutique in PDX, our boutique in Northern California (boutique pricing varies), community centers, restaurants, halls, etc. Backyards and Parks can make a very beautiful setting and we do service to them, however we ask that in the event of rain, extreme heat, or wind, our performers be provided with an indoor setting as a Plan B.
