Frequently Asked Questions
Q- Why is Fairytale Princess Parties different from other princess companies?
A- At Fairytale, we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality characters, activities and entertainment for our clients. We pay close attention to all the details of our wigs, and costumes for the performers. You won't find a party store wig on any of our performers. All our costumes are commissioned by a seamstress, and all wigs are couture styled by professionals. Our performers are the best around, all with backgrounds in singing, dancing and theatre. Our princesses are all highly trained as this job requires a special set of skill we feel any true princess performer needs as a children's entertainer. Anyone can put on a dress and a wig but it takes a true performer to inject the magic and project the dream!
Q- How do I book?
A-Please email us first before booking a party to confirm your date and time is available. We require a $100 deposit to hold the date and time of your party. This deposit must be payed at the time of booking. You may also choose to pay the balance in full at this time if you would like. The remaining balance does not have to be paid until the date of the party. You can choose to pay your remaining balance through our online checkout with your credit card, or on the day of the party. If you choose to pay on the date of the party, you can pay the performer cash at the end of the party, or through our Square reader for your credit card. Please specify if this is how you want to pay.

A- Please click HERE to see our activities page for a detailed description of everything to expect during your party!
Q- Can I book more than 1 princess?
A- Of course! You can add as many additional princesses as you would like to your party for an additional fee of $75 per character. Book an extra character here
Q- When should I book my party?
A- As far in advance as possible. We recommend at least a month, especially for the more popular characters such as the Snow Queen, or Winter Princess, although we can accommodate last minute party bookings, just call us!
Q- Can we tip the princess?
A- Yes of course! Tips are always appreciated by all of our performers, but never expected. We just ask you place the tip in an envelope and give it to the performer out of sight of the children, as not to ruin the magic.
Q-Where do we go for the party?
A- We bring the party to you! You just name your date and location, and we will be there! We can come to your home, community centre, school, or any event venue!
Q- How many guests are allowed at each party?
A- Our parties are designed for up to 12 children per character! If you are expecting more than 12 children at your party, you must book a second princess!
Q- What ages are the parties appropriate for?
A- Our parties are perfect for girls aged 3-10 years old, these are the 'prime princess years'. We recommend our Enchanted Package for younger princesses and girls under the age of 3
Q- Should I tell my daughter a princess is coming to her party?
A- This is completely up to you, but we always find that surprises are the best!
Q- What do the guests wear?
A- Girls can dress up in their own costumes or fancy dresses, but our 60 and 90 minute packages include a dress up chest, so no need to wear anything fancy to the party, we will dress up the girls once we arrive!
Q- Are boys allowed?
A- Yes! As long as they are interested in what we are doing. We recommend you let us know ahead of time if there are going to be any boys at the party so we can make sure we have 'Kings' costumes and boys tattoos for them
Q- What do we need to prepare before the princess arrives?
A- Please make sure you have enough room for all the activities. A living room with the coffee table moved out of the way is generally the perfect place to have a party, or a playroom. The princess needs a chair to sit in, access to an electrical outlet, and everything else she brings!
Q- What can I do to make sure the day goes as smoothly as possible?
A- There are a few things that always helps the day out. Have water available for the princess to drink throughout your party. Try to get the kids ready and get them together right before the character arrives, so she can get into the activities with the children right away. Arrange for the eating time to be either before or after the character visit. (If pizza arrives at the same time the princess arrives, the two conflict with each other). We always recommend serving the cake 10 minutes before the princess leaves to ensure a seamless exit, so make sure you have your cake ready, and all the guests out of their princess costumes, and gathered around the table! And last but not least have your cameras ready throughout the party, you don't want to miss special moments of your daughter with our princesses!
Q- Can we have our party outside?
Yes, but if you are planning an outside party, make sure the area is guarded from heat/sun, or from any wet weather. Have a clean, dry, shaded area for activities, free of dirt, mud, water and any other bad weather conditions that may cause an ill effect to the party activities and the guests.
