Frequently asked Questions
How do I book a party?
To ensure we are able to make all your party wishes come true we will need the following:
- a completed details form (follow the link to sumbit)
- 50% deposit (required to reserve your date and time)
- a completed contract of agreement
What is your availability?
Due to high demand, we strongly recommend booking at least 4-6 weeks in advance. Saturday parties sometimes book months in advance. However, we do try to accommodate for last-minute requests. Just inquire about availability, and we will do our best to assist! Please note: We operate on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED reservation policy. Reservations will not be confirmed without a 50% deposit. In order to give us enough preparation time for our upcoming weekend of parties, the latest we can accept party reservations is the Wednesday before your requested party date at 5:00 pm.
Do you travel?
Yes, we do travel! Although we work closely with the Castle on Stagecoach and perform there often, we do not own the castle, nor do we have a storefront of our own. You will need to secure a venue of your own to host your party where we can provide the entertainment. We are based out of Little Rock, AR. There will be a $1 per mile charge for parties booked at venues between 20 and 45 miles from our location in area code 72212. Requests for traveling distances greater than 45 miles away from our location can be negotiated for an additional charge, based on our performer availability and scheduling demands. Contact us at email@example.com for more information!
Can I host a party outside?
Yes, you may! Of course, indoor conditions are much more favorable for our characters, considering they come dressed in elaborate wigs and costumes. However, outdoor parties can be lovely and work well with our activities, if they follow the following criteria: Please note the weather report the week before your party. If the heat index is predicted to exceed 80 degrees or if there is a high chance of rain, the performer will require an indoor space for his/her portion of the party. If conditions outside are pleasant, please provide a shaded area, free from standing water, mud, or other elements that may cause damage to the costumes. Also, please provide a clean chair for the performer to sit in as well as an area suitable for storytelling, singing and dancing with the children. Please always have an indoor back-up location. Weather is unpredictable, (especially in Arkansas!), and finding a last-minute location in the event of extreme weather or rain could add unnecessary stress to your party plans. OUR PRINCESSES MUST BE INDOORS WHEN BOOKING IN THE MONTHS OF MAY-AUGUST.
What types of payment do you accept?
We are proud to accept all forms of payment including cash, check, or credit/debit card* *(Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express).
Should I tip my performer?
A delicate question! The price of the package does not include gratuity for the performer, but it is GREATLY appreciated and helps offset the costs needed for our supplies/costumes/travel/etc. (and lets the performer know that you are happy with her (or his) performance!)
Are you affiliated with a brand?
No. It is not the intention of Fancyful Fairytale Parties to violate any copyright laws. Our characters are inspired by the many popular renditions of these characters. We are not affiliated with any theme park or company – any resemblance to these renditions is coincidental.
Can I request a specific performer?
Yes! We do our best to secure requests for specific performers, however, due to scheduling conflicts, we are not always able to accomodate the request.
Do you do Evening Parties?
For the safety of our performers, parties booked between 5:00pm and 8:00pm have a two-person minimum. (For Daylight Savings time, this applies to parties booked between 6:30 and 8:00 pm) There are two options: 1) You may add an additional character to your package (please see our “Party Packages” tab) OR 2) An assistant will be assigned to accompany your performer. ($40 for 30 minutes, $50 for 60 minutes or $60 for 90 minutes)
