"The Snow Queen" (Annie) was fabulous at my daughter's tea party! We had the tea party at the Park Hill location. Caroline does an amazing job setting the tone for the whole party. The decorations are matched to the princess that is visiting. They are beautiful!! The Snow Queen came to the party and met my daughter. She painted all of the girl's faces and while the other girls were waiting they made bracelets. The girls then had an etiquette lesson- which was genius. All of the girls then were on their best behavior to show their manors to the princess. They said, "Please" and "Thank You". They drank their "tea" (blue gatorade) with their pinkies up and had sophisticated conversations about the princess and the pizza. :)
Annie kept them busy with games (no girl is "out" with hot potato, they "win" and there are no tears!) She danced with them and was able to keep all 16+ girls entertained and happy. We ended the evening with a story and pictures! It was the best princess party ever! They also had a tiny "fairy" door that the girls had to find and if they tapped on the door they could hear bells. They loved this and all of them took a turn trying to hear the fairy bells.
The tea party was even better than having the princess come to our own party last year. While Erica (she was fabulous!) did a great job, it was being at their location that set the tone for the whole party.
THANK YOU again, Caroline for a fabulous experience!
Wands and Wishes went above and beyond to make our event extra special. They were responsive, professional, and our characters were out of this world (we booked Moana and Captain Jack Sparrow and they were both incredible!) I've used similar services in the past, and they pale in comparison to the experience Wands and Wishes provided. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to host a memorable event!
Positive, Energetic, Enthusiastic and Delightful. The 5 year old guests at this birthday party, were enchanted from the moment the "Disney Princess Ariel" appeared and joined them. Brittany, as Ariel, was very engaging. The kids were captivated as she read a story, sang to them and gave each a glittery stamp and wish. I would recommend using them to anyone wanting that special extra something for your little princess events.
My 7 year old absolutely loved her spa party! Ryahn was “Mel” and she was awesome! She made my daughter feel sooooo special from the beginning to the end of our party.
Due to the fact that my original party plans fell through I was scrambling for something fun for the kids. Wands and Wishes immediately contacted me and scheduled our event. Emery (Snow Queen) showed up as scheduled and she was amazing!!! She was in character the whole time, was super flexible and simply phenomenal with all the children. Her patience as well as her singing voice were astounding. Furthermore, my 3 year old was so cranky when the Snow Queen arrived due to a shortened nap and she totally helped her cheer up . We had kids ranging in age from 1 - 10 years old and Emery was able to captivate them all. Thank you so much Wanda and Wishes for rescuing the party. Thank you Emery for making it epic!!!
We had Morgan preform as Elsa for our three year old daughter's birthday party and she was amazing! She was so good with all the children, keeping hem entertained and engaged the whole time. We were impressed with her beautiful singing voice too! We highly recommend wands and wishes
It was such a pleasure having Morgan at our party and it made my daughters bday so special!
We booked a Santa (Alan) for our event held at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. He was wonderful! He showed up early in order to set up and check out the venue. We had more guests than anticipated so the room was crowded. Our Santa made the event a huge success. He was friendly, engaging and took photos with every guest who requested it. That was almost everyone. He was great and I would use him again next year.
Response from Wands and Wishes Occasions:
Hi Leslie, Thank you for the wonderful review- Alan will be thrilled to hear it! We take pride in all our performers and have full confidence in their performance. We are so happy you enjoyed his visit! Let us know if you are ever in need of characters for any other events.
Best Wishes- WW Fairy Godmother
We had Cinderella visit my daughter's third birthday party and she was absolutely spectacular! What a magical moment/memory for my daughter. Heather far exceeded our expectations, we are so grateful, it was awesome!!

Mariah was the best. She played the red slipper girl. What a fantastic job she did! She kept the kids interested and was absolutely wonderful with them! The entire organization was very professional. I was so pleased with everything! I will definitely recommend and use Wands / Wishes again!
Adriane was amazing as Wonder Woman at my 4 year old daughter's super hero party. I couldn't have imagined a better surprise for her! We have been watching the video, looking at photos, and playing the games she taught us over and over.
Wonder Woman had so many activities and was so professional, staying in character the whole time. She was beautiful and very convincing in her costume, better than the overdone characters we have met at big venues. She didn't rush the kids and made sure everyone was included, while keeping the focus on the birthday girl... quite a feat!!
My daughter was beyond thrilled, and Wonder Woman was entertaining for the parents with fun remarks for us, too. Her voice was amazing as she sang happy birthday and graceful as she exited the party. Thank you so much!
We had a frozen birthday party for my grand daughter and invited both Elsa and Anna! Jessica arrived as Elsa and Erica arrived as Anna. They were both ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR! Their
voices and their appearance were
BEAUTIFUL!!! They were on time and did
a great job working with my grand
daughter to come out her shell because
she is very shy..they did so good she
asked if she could take them home
Erica surprised our daughter as the Snow Queen at our Frozen party. The little girls were absolutely in love with Erica, who stayed in character the entire hour. I couldn't have asked for a better Snow Queen. I highly recommend Wands and Wishes to help make your party a hit! Erica has an amazing voice and the songs were simply beautiful. She was on point and answered all the interesting questions our daughter and her friends could come up with over the course of the party. Very professional and great with the kids!
Response from Wands and Wishes Occasions:
Thank you so much for the lovely review:) We think Erica is amazing too- and feel so lucky to have her as a performer:) We truly appreciate hearing from parents, and it means so much to our performers. Thank you again- and Best Wishes- WW Fairy Godmother
I could not be more blown away by Jessica! Rapunzel came to my daughter's 4th birthday party and created a memories we will never forget.
Rapunzel was on time and in character from the moment she arrived. She read the story of Rapunzel, which included a few props for the children to pass around, and was very patient with the children as they asked questions and often interrupted. Then she sang,danced and took photos. Her voice was AMAZING and even had me thinking she really was Rapunzel. Thanks for the BEST.DAY.EVER!

We hired Burke(Batman) for our grandson Malachi's 6th birthday party. We were so impressed with Burks's professionalism. I'm so lucky that I was able to capture my grandsons reaction to batman's entrance, The look on my grandsons face was priceless.. Burke engaged each and every child and made them feel special . I really don't know how to really express how happy we were with is performance other than to say ..Thank you.. Thank You !!!
Princess Sophia entertained 11 little princesses for our daughters 3rd birthday party. I was unsure how it would turn out due to Princess Sophia being such a new princess. Sophia was amazing!!! She had a gorgeous Sophia gown, looked like Sophia, sang beautifully like Sophia, and even had a young girls voice like Sophia! The girls were so excited. I think my little princess was in shock the whole time. I would highly recommend Princess Sophia for any girls party!
I have been a character actress for Wands and Wishes for three years, and the owner (Caroline) is the best employer anyone could ask for. She is helpful, kind, and treats her staff exceedingly well. I love working for Wands and Wishes because I know that Caroline appreciates my talents (as a professional singer, actress, and future teacher) and works hard to maintain the highest quality costumes and customer service in the area.
Wands and Wishes is simply the BEST in Colorado when it comes to princess and superhero appearances.
