Once Upon A Time – A Princess and Superhero Party for Kids With Life Threatening Illnesses


At a unique annual event for children with life-threatening illnesses, children can unleash their inner princess or superhero by enjoying games and prizes throughout the day. Choose the best superhero characters for parties.

Entertainers arrive 20 minutes early in character to set up and greet guests, give out glitter tattoos and balloon swords, take photos with guests, and help organize party games!

Arrive in Character

Princess or Superhero visits can transform any ordinary event into an extraordinary and magnificent one! Princesses or superheroes can visit birthday parties, hospital visits, library storytelling sessions, daycare and school events, charity fundraising efforts, or public appearances for your convenience.

Our entertainers arrive dressed and in character 20 minutes before your party starts to set up and greet the children, performing personalized glitter tattoos and balloon swords as an icebreaker to help shy children feel more at ease. They will also present your Birthday Child with a Princess Coronation Crown or Superhero Certificate so they feel extra special on their special day!

They will lead the children in engaging and creative age-appropriate party games that ensure all guests have an unforgettable time.


Children will become immersed in the party fun as they join their favorite princess or superhero and participate in imaginative, age-appropriate games. Shy children can feel at ease as their imaginations run wild! While waiting for the party to begin, entertainers will provide personalized glitter tattoos and balloon swords as great icebreakers while giving children something fun to do while waiting.

Play other entertaining games to keep everyone busy, such as corners (by placing pictures of princesses and superheroes in each corner; when the music stops, they must run to which corner they think their view might be). The first team to do this wins a sticker/sweet/prize!

Cake Time

After the games, we take a 30-minute break for cake (provided by parents) and drinks. During this period, your entertainers can catch up with late arrivals with glitter tattoos or balloon swords before still maintaining character for pictures with guests while taking the place of character photos with them. Once everyone has settled for the cake presentation, the Princess or Superhero will help to present it, ensuring every child meets their special guest and fulfills their wish!

After taking photos with the children, your Princess or Superhero will lead all of their guests in singing a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday while answering any queries they might have and giving the birthday child an individualized Snow Princess Parties crown as a special memento of their special day! They can even assist the birthday child with opening presents while helping with group photos!

This package offers performances by one character of your choice for two hours. They will present musical Storytelling Shows, the Princess Lesson, dancing, games, and photo ops for photo ops before performing their Cake Cutting Ceremony! A Party Assistant will accompany them and offer one Special Activity that fits the bill – this package can accommodate 20 children!

The Finale

Once Upon A Time is an annual event in which superheroes and princesses unite to help children living with life-threatening illnesses shine for one day. Hosted by Children’s Hospital of Michigan’s Palliative Care Team, this year marked its fifth Princess and Superhero Party held at Henry Hotel in Dearborn – starting as a small vision, it has grown thanks to community generosity.

Your costumed character will welcome guests with open arms as they greet them with their wands or swords to ensure an exciting and entertaining experience. Depending on your package booked with them, they may include special activities for everyone, like giving each child personalized glitter tattoos or balloon swords to help break the ice and ensure every child can spend one-on-one time with their favorite character.

Activities may include storytime, craft, or game time tailored to your child’s and guests’ ages and preferences. Our performers are skilled at reading the crowd, so if your little ones prefer more story time and less gameplay, no problem! They’ll keep them thoroughly engaged during every minute!

After dinner, enjoy cake, presents, and an unforgettable dance from your character—an ideal way to round off her special birthday bash and create lasting memories for her!
