"I wanted to take a minute to say that Darth Vader MADE the party a success. There were generations of Star Wars fans and everyone could not stop talking about it. My son said that this was the best party ever. Darth Vader's patience and kindness to take pictures with the kids will never be forgotten. You exceeded any of my expectations and provided such a wonderful experience. My friends are already looking to get Darth Vader to come to their kids party. I will definitely write a review on how absolutely wonderful your company is. Thank you again. With appreciation and gratitude."

"Thank you for making my daughter's 8th birthday party so special, that she will never forget it! I booked this company for a Frozen themed party and since I've never experienced a party like this (hiring characters) - it blew me away! My daughter was made to feel SO special and all her friends had a wonderful time! The team and characters were so enthusiastic and eager to please, that it made me feel so good as her parent to have taken the time to contact them - they did the rest! If you are looking for a reputable, dependable and quality company to plan your next party - A Wish Your Heart Makes lives up to its promise!"

"We recently booked Tinker Bell for my daughter's 3rd birthday. I wasn't sure what to expect. We were blown away with the service we received from start to finish. Kathee, the owner is so professional and organized. The young adult who came as Tinkerbell was amazing. She did a fantastic job with the kids. The character will call you a few days ahead to discuss what you would like in terms of activities, dancing, pictures, etc. I cannot say enough about this company. The costumes are top notch, nothing tacky. From wigs, to make up, to their shoes. She holds a high standard for her employees. You will not be disappointed."
"We highly recommend A Wish your Heart Makes. Our daughter's 7th Birthday was so Magical. Princess Cinderella, Queen Elsa and Princess Anna looked authentic. The Princesses also entertained the girls engaging them in storytelling and dancing. Our daughter loved having the Princesses they made her feel very special. Definitely a Birthday to Remember."
My son and his friends had a blast with Batman. Batman was very friendly and patient with the young kids!! It melted my heart when my son got excited see Batman at the door he had a smile from ear to ear thank you so much for making my son birthday so special!!
"I booked Queen Elsa for a classroom visit, and she was great! My daughter loves it so much! And I have to say I love how they pay attention to small details it was definitely a great experience and I will be recommending it to others. A Wish Your Heart Makes is all about making customers happy, and I definitely appreciate that as a parent because my daughter was so happy."
"Very sweet people to deal with on the phone and great performers. We've had them out for birthday parties for the last 3 years. Batman was awesome!"

"Ariel was such a joy to have at our event! On behalf of the Central Coast Aquarium, I would just like to say how easy-going, yet professional, this company is. We had Ariel come paint faces at our beach cleanup festival, and she handled the flurries of children with grace and enthusiasm. I would definitely recommend A Wish Your Heart Makes to any organization/individual hoping to add an exciting children's aspect to their event."
"Anna and Elsa visited my daughters 2nd birthday party and she was mesmerized. They were beautiful, talented, polite and very professional. I was very happy with the performance and would definitely recommend this company to all my friends and family. Definitely booking again soon."
"I’ll start off by saying that I initially booked Queen Elsa and Princess Anna with a different company two months prior to my daughter's birthday party. Three days before the party, I was told I would not have an experienced Queen Elsa or Princess Anna. I was very disappointed and upset. I Googled and called several companies looking for characters for my daughter’s party. When I called “A Wish Your Heart Makes” I left a message and Kathee (Owner) returned my call within a couple of hours. I told her I desperately needed a Queen Elsa and a Princess Anna. I also told her my bad experience with another company and she was very understanding of the situation and very professional. She told me she would try her best to find a Queen Elsa and Princess Anna. She was in constant communication with me to let me know of her progress in finding them. Within a day, she called and said she had found my characters and also an Olaf! I ended up booking a Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, and Olaf for 1 ½ hours! Kathee was very diligent in trying to meet my expectations and not leaving me without any characters for our party. Queen Elsa and Princess Ana drove all the way from Santa Maria. I knew that two days before a party was almost impossible but Kathee was amazing in finding them. This company has characters located not only in the central valley but also the central coast. Kathee surpassed my expectations! “A Wish Your Heart Makes” is the company to use for your next party! Queen Elsa and Princess Anna arrived on time, looked just like the character they portrayed, very good with the kids, they danced, sang, and were just really sweet! I would really recommend this company for your next party! Kathee was easy to work with and good on returning calls and making sure that I was satisfied. I will definitely use “A Wish Your Heart Makes” for our next daughter’s party! It was the best experience and they made my daughter’s day the best!!"
"A Wish Your Heart Makes made this year's Walk MS event in San Luis Obispo extra special. Their "princess" facepainter was fantastic and brought extra enthusiasm to everybody of all ages participating in our event. This extra touch made our fundraising event extra fun for the entire family. I hope and look forward to having the opportunity to work with A Wish Your Heart Makes again for a future event."
"Thanks to the Star Wars team who made my son's birthday party a big hit. It was such a treat for all kids and parents too. The characters looked liked they just stepped of the movie set! They were great with the kids too! I highly recommend this company and I would work with them again."
"I had cinderella and snow white for my daughter's 1st birthday party and they did amazing. I highly recommend them. The girls did amazing job with paying attention also listen to every kids request, taking pictures. What I loved more about it is the smile they kept on their faces and the children especially my daughter. They made her birthday party a magical one. I will definitely be getting new characters for my daughter 4th birthday this year. I'm excited to get tinkerbell and Peter Pan. Maybe elsa and Ana too. Thank you for everything and see you guys in august."
"Spiderman was awesome!!!!! My son's reaction was priceless. The person I talked to on the phone was very helpful and sweet. I will definitely use them again."
"We had Elsa and Olaf attend our final day of Frozen and Preschool Princess summer camp at Coastal Dance and Music Academy and all of the kids had such a great time. The characters told the story of Frozen and then took pictures with our students. It is so much fun watching their eyes light up. Thanks A Wish Your Heart Makes!"
"The Santa Maria Valley Discovery Museum is so excited to have a partnership with A Wish Your Heart Makes! Each of our character visits is a fantastic opportunity for our patrons and it is so heartwarming to see children and their families singing and dancing with the AWYHM characters. It's truly a treat for all involved!"
VP Ruth Gibson PTA
"The SUPER Heroes of A Wish Your Heart Makes surprised our students and moms at our 2015 Mother/Son Dance. They were absolutely amazing and out of this world! The kids were so elated and enjoyed snapping lots of selfies and creating dance trains with the more than life SUPER visitors. They truly made our event a Knight to remember, we are forever grateful!"
Managing Director, Coastal Performing Arts Foundation
"We hired A Wish Your Heart Makes characters (Elsa & Olaf) to appear on the final day of our Frozen Winter Camp. The experience from start to finish was wonderful! This company was extremely friendly and professional throughout the whole process, from making the reservations to the visit by the characters. The characters were fantastic! The children thought they were really meeting Elsa and Olaf and had stars in their eyes the entire time. The parents commented that the characters looked straight out of Disneyland (and they did)! They not only looked the parts but Elsa had warm, genuine interaction with the children and Olaf was amazing at communicating without being able to speak. This was a top-notch experience from start to finish and we will definitely be working with them again in the future."
"My daughter had her 5th birthday party this past weekend. I had Elsa come to the party to surprise my daughter, and she absolutely LOVED it! Elsa was amazing and great with the kids. She kept the kids interested the whole hour she was there. This was the first time I used A Wish Your Heart Makes, and it definitely won't be my last. Awesome first experience and so happy with the whole process. My daughter loved how Elsa gave her all the attention, and it is something she will forever talk about. Thank you for making my daughter's birthday party special!"
"We had a fundraiser for my child's school with a winter theme. Anna and Elsa were a delightful addition to our evening. The young ladies were professional, and kept in character to the delight of our parents that evening. I would highly recommend A Wish Your Heart Makes as these ladies were a wonderful addition!"
"We have had two events with A Wish Your Heart Makes and both have blown me away. The events have been held in the childcare department at Kennedy Club Fitness. The first event we had Snow White come and do face painting for all the children. Face painting is fun, but getting your face painted by a princess... priceless! After all the children were painted Snow White played with the children. One child offered her an apple and she quickly responded, "Oh, I haven't had very good luck with apples." Snow White then proceeded to tell a little more about her story and the children were enthralled. I was so impressed at how Snow White never broke character. Our second event was a story time and music event with Anna, Elsa and Rapunzel. We loved it! Elsa told the Frozen story and then after the princesses guided the children through movement to Disney music. All the children followed along. There was even a little boy and girl who continued to ball room dance together on their own accord. It was truly a special moment. The music continued and the princesses played with the children and took pictures with them. We love A Wish Your Heart Makes. We already have another event booked with them and I'm confident that it will be a great success. Thank you AWYHM for bringing the magic into our club!"
"We had Elsa and Anna come to our daughter's 6 year birthday and they were just delightful! She really believed they were the actual princess and they brought her a lovely crown, not a cheesy plastic one either...it was metal, fit her perfect and she hasn't taken it off except to sleep. They sang, they did face painting, took pictures - I couldn't have asked for more! We will for sure use this company again! thank you so much for making our daughter feel so special!"
"Sleeping Beauty and the 3 fairies came to a birthday party set up for my little cousin Lorena by the Make-A-Wish foundation. They were all beautiful and in character the whole time. All the kids were so enchanted and we all had a lot of fun. Thanks for making my little cousin so happy on her special day."
Lisa Lynne Arie
"I visited home a few months ago and attended a birthday party where Elsa and Anna surprised the birthday girl by showing up. I was so impressed. The characters had spot-on costumes, beautiful singing voices, and they really WERE Elsa and Anna. I was convinced they had just come straight from Arandelle. If I ever move back to Fresno I will definitely be booking them for my twins. I only just now got the name of the company from my friend who hosted the party and just had to give my two thumbs up! Wonderful company! Keep up the amazing work!"
"Amazing crew. Wonderful to work with. Magic is definitely created with these folks. Frozen brought to life for so many children! Thank you for partnering with us at Barnes & Noble, you brought a truly amazing and wonderful experience for so many to our store."
"We used A Wish Your Heart Makes for our daughter's birthday party. Sophia was wonderful! She engage the crowd and all the children were so star struck! Sophia was extremely profession and dedicated to her craft. The price was very reasonable as well! I'd recommend this service to any and everyone! Thank you for making our daughter's birthday a cherished memory!!"
"My daughter's 4th Birthday was INCREDIBLE because of this amazing company! Kathee's customer service was top notch. The princesses were prefect and They stayed in character the entire time 🙂 I am still beyond impressed! I highly recommend them!!"
"We had Cinderella and Tinkerbell for my daughter's b-day yesterday! They were great with the kids! Very happy and pleased I got them! Thank you so much for going above and beyond our expectations!"
"My daughter loved her visit from Tinkerbell so much! It was a priceless memory for us all. Truly made her day special. A little miss-communication in the beginning with setting up the date/details, but overall great experience."
"As a teacher I have used A Wish Your Heart Makes many times to surprise my students. We have had amazing characters come into our classroom and transform it in to a fairy tale. I recently tried a wish gram for my daughters classroom birthday party. Mary Popins came flying in and entertained the class through songs and stories. My favorite part was when she asked the class to tell my daughter their birthday wish for her. It was so sweet and memorable."
"Thank you for the wonderful services you presented at the Zalud House Museum Christmas tours. Your company delivers with enthusiasm and professional services. Thank you and I look forward to working with you in the future."
"Congratulations on the great job you are doing! You are creating life long memories for our children. Your staff is professional and shows a genuine passion in what they are doing. I highly recommend A Wish Your Heart Makes to anyone who has a child and wishes to provide an exciting and memorable event."
"A wonderful company! Their characters are so authentic! I have seen many other children's party characters that just don't impress! These guys are the real deal! They are reliable, have every detail thought out and put on a great show! I appreciated the conformation phone call before hand, and also the day of the party! Great customer service, and very organized! My daughter and her little friends really believed that Cinderella was their new friend and had made them all princesses like her! I also love the values she taught them about kindness and friendship! This was just so adorable!!!! I will definitely hire them again! My little girl wants to meet all of the princesses now!!!! Thank you for making my little girl feel so special on her Birthday!!!!"
"I took my kids to our Farmer’s Market here in Coalinga last night and we stopped at Tinkerbell’s booth. Wow!! She looks just like the real Tink! I have two young girls 4 & 7 who watch her movies on repeat! They were so in awe and haven’t stopped talking about it since. The young lady did so well staying in character as well..even I felt like I was watching the movies..she answered all of their questions just like Tink and gave great answers. Even my 9 year old son who tried to be funny with her and asking probably a few challenging (lol poor Tink) questions..she was still quick on her toes with a great answer..even he sat with her for a face painting (she did his favorite baseball teams logo just for him) and a picture. I had never heard of your company until yesterday. Not only is she a great Tink but she can really sell! She told me all about the company, how sweet the owner and her daughter are and was just very helpful and she honestly seems to love doing the job. Which is very rare these days, to see someone talk about their job that way. I imagine it is a very fun job. I was all around very impressed with her..and now after seeing the FB page and website, even more so. I sent a message to her on our Coalinga Citizens FB group where she does a lot of advertising, to thank her and she was so sweet. She thanked me for stopping by and said she loves interacting with all the kids and finds it very rewarding! What a gem! I will definitely be booking her for my daughters birthdays early next year! This is such an awesome idea for a company..I can see you bring so much joy to children..and even to this adult! Love you Tinkerbell! "
"On June 29th our church in Coalinga hosted a Par-Tea for 20 little girls. They were elated when Rapunzel (Tiffany) came breezing in. They crowded around her and started asking her questions like “Did you ride your horse today?” and looked at her with total awe. Rapunzel led them in a dance song and then posed for photos with each girl. She is beautiful, regal, and an asset to Coalinga. Many little girls will be requesting special birthday parties after seeing her. Thank you so much for all the special memories you made!"
"I took my granddaughter to see Rapunzel at the Farmer’s Market last night in Coalinga. She loved it. I thought she did a terrific job. My daughter is hoping to have Rapunzel for her birthday party in February.."
"My daughter wanted a princess party, I searched every where and couldn’t find anyone that would do such a party. I stumbled on this website. When her big day came, it was so cute and she got everything we expected and more! I got the enchanted room package and she was so happy! The characters that attended were cute. Bell and Cinderella were just the best! I could not believe the patience they had with all the girls and how they stayed in character the whole time, even with the parents! It’s safe to say my daughter had the “bestest party ever!!!” She was the Princess of the day and I thank you for making it so special for her!"
Jordan Hooper, Event Coordinator Fresno Chaffee Zoo
"I felt the characters that A Wish Your Heart Makes brought to Fresno Chaffee Zoo’s Frogs and Fairytales were very authentic. The princesses were very personable with the children and did a great job of getting down on their level to talk with them. They made every child feel special.Belle and Cinderella were very believable. I didn’t get to spend much time with Cinderellabecause she was taking pictures with children for the hour she was here, but Belle had anamazing voice and really sounded like her character. The little girls followed her around because they just wanted to talk to her.It was great. "A Wish Your Heart Makes was very professional, yet personal at the same time & I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is having a party with princesses or any magical character."
Bernie Duran Canerday
"I have used Kathee and the fabulous cast of characters from A Wish Your Heart Makes on many occasions. One year my son had a Star Wars Theme Party.....Darth Vader, Princess Leia, and Luke Skywalker were an absolute hit. From the face painting to the balloon making and the Jedi light saber training.....the boys and girls were completely ecstatic! We have had A Wish Your Heart Makes visit my son's school for Valentine's Day last year and this year, The Queen of Hearts and Alice did a wonderful job and Minnie Mouse was excellent! It just keeps getting better and better and we are always impressed with the talent and the work that they do. Thank You so much Kathee and Ashley, you guys are wonderful.....can't wait for the next party:)"
"Both my son's 1st birthday's had characters from A Wish Your Heart Makes. The children and adults had so much fun! They still talk about it. My son even had a character visit his preschool this year. I wish the company was around when I was a kid. Kathee and her team are wonderful! They always come through for me. Thank you for making our wishes come true."
"I contacted Mrs Brown for my daughters b-day on Nov.06, 2010 with about 4 days before the party she got me my characters I requested but did an awesome job KATHEE is the most professional person to contact for characters. We had a day that till this day my daughter still talks about it. In August is my daughters birthday mmmmm I wonder what character shell choosr? Two thumbs up for a wish your heart makes..."
"I asked for 'Alice in Wonderland' characters and that's exactly what I got! Creating the perfect Mad Hatter's tea party was what I wanted to give my little girl, I received that and more. All of the characters were professional and in full character. My guests were pleasantly surprised with how they could actually sit back and enjoy the party, have a chat and a bite to eat while their children were wildly entertained from start to finish! Working with Kathee, is a party mom's dream. She was helpful, organized and most importantly kept focus on envisioning what I wanted to do. From a mom who strives to crank out killer kid parties, A Wish Your Heart Makes is a must for your next little ones celebration!"

"I wanted to thank you for the wonderful entertainment provided at the 40th CAB Monster Bash and Blood Drive on Make a difference day this past weekend! Tinkerbell l& Captain Hook were amazing with the kids and adults alike!! We were sad to see them go!! Thank you all for all the hard work and effort you put into making a difference in the lives of children.. You all put a new meaning to "Believe"
"It was a wonderful party…. Even more fabulous than last year! Clara and I were tickled pink. The party was smooth, fun, spirited, colorful, energetic, beautiful! Miss Brown was very, very polite and professional while talking with me, and very kind and upbeat when interacting with the children. The party moved right along schedule, in fact, it felt perfectly timed. It was perfect. I would like to be more eloquent sharing details of the party with you, but the whole thing seems like one big beautiful blur of a fantasy or dream to me… which I believe is exactly how it was meant to be! "Both parties that A Wish Your Heart Makes has put on for my now 5-year old daughter were absolutely wonderful. They provided a dream-like atmosphere for the party guests to become completely absorbed in. From start to finish, they handled every detail, ensuring each guest feels they have been included in their own special event-to-remember. The laughter and smiles on everyone’s faces said it all.”
"My daughter felt so special on her 7th birthday. She felt like a real princess. Thank you so much and I look forward to having you attend my other daughters' birthdays as well. "
"I booked a Princess Party for my daughter's 7th birthday. The Cinderella Princess who arrived seemed right out of Disneyland and the children were completely captivated. She was so in character that I even believed she was a real princess. All of the activities she did with the children were fabulous! I've already recommended Kathee's parties to all my co-workers!"
"My five year old had the wonderful opportunity of spending a morning with princesses and some of her very best friends! The tea party with a princess hostess was an absolute favorite! The joy on the faces of those darling little girls was priceless! The event was well-organized and catered nicely to the interests of the children. We can hardly wait to party like a princess again soon!"
"My son had a blast at his football birthday party. He wasn't expecting such a great party. He is usually shy around people when it comes to having attention paid to him at his birthday, but the "coach" made the party seem more like a team event rather than an individual one, which was perfect for my son. He was glad all of his guests were in on the action. All the boys who attended said the party was great! It was so different than anything they had ever been invited to. I appreciated how the "coach" organized the boys and made every one of them feel just as important as the birthday boy, who was glad not to have the spotlight only on himself. Thank you for all you do and keep up the awesome work!!"
"What a special day for my daughter! Princess Aurora came looking beautiful and made my daughter feel like a perfect little princess. The red carpet was especially adorable and the activities kept the girls involved. After the up-dos, Princess Aurora took individual pictures with the girls. Those sweet smiles made my day!"
"For my son's 8th birthday, A Wish Your Heart Makes put on a Star Wars party. They had Darth Vader, LukeSkywalker, and Princess Leia. Luke Skywalker trained the young Padiwans or Jedi's in the art of light saber dueling. Most of the kids dressed like Jedi's, and had their own light sabers. Some of the girls were dressed as Princess Leia. When the training was over, Darth Vader came out and "dueled" with the kids. It was great! My son said it was the best day of his life! It was a wonderful party - they did an excellent job."
I had a birthday party for my 5 yr. old daughter at a park on 3/30/14. This was the first time I had hired entertainment for her birthday. I booked the “Royal Majesty Party” package and to say the least was not disappointed. We invited her entire preschool class (20 friends) and family/friends. We had Rapunzel and Spiderman. They both stayed in character the entire time even with 18+ kids screaming at them trying to get their attention. They were patient and the smiles the whole time! We selected (for our two activities) games with prizes and balloon animals. We also had a tea party and the girls loved it!! During this time the boys were entertained with a Spiderman/Tug-a-war. Our party was at the park which was great as it allowed lots of room for the activities to play out. Only hiccup was, Rapunzel and Spiderman looked and played the part so well, we had other children from the parties at ours! I couldn’t blame them. Who could pass up the opportunity to meet Rapunzel and Spiderman?? We had parents from other parties come to ours to get the information/business card. Their costumes were awesome and again, they stayed in character through it all!! I don’t know how they did it. Spiderman even got in the bounce house with the children and still stayed in character!! They also able to answer all questions thrown at them by children about their character. I was HIGHLY satisfied with Rapunzel and Spiderman’s performance. In regards to the communication before the party, I was highly impressed on how quickly Kathee responded both by email and phone. She responded quickly every time I made contact and answered all 100 of my questions. My husband didn’t see the need book one let alone two characters for the party as in his time cake an ice cream was enough. After the party, he stated he was glad I didn’t listen to him. I can’t wait to her next birthday party to see who get to invite! Thank you to all at A Wish Your Heart Makes for making my daughter’s birthday the best ever!!!!
We invited Princess Jasmine to our 5 year olds party and she was amazing! Our crowd of children were all about 4-5 and some shy but Princess Jasmine was so sweet and kind and interacted wonderfully with all the children. The face painting was so fun and a wonderful one on one interaction. Princess Jasmines singing was something my daughter will forever remember! The best birthday!
Elsa and Anna came for our daughters 5th birthday. They made the party! Although the birthday girl got some extra attention, they made every child there feel special. The company provides great customer service and even though my request was last minute, they made it happen. They were organized, on time, and professional.
My daughter turned 9 today and we could’ve chosen a better magical surprise for her. Her face was priceless when princess Snow White walked in at her birthday party. She had such an awesome time and so did all the other kids. I highly recommend wish your heart for your next event. Snow white thank you! You are amazing ❤️
My daughter’s party was a success! We had Moana come to my daughters 4th birthday party, she did storytelling for the kids, face painting, red carpet coronation! Moana was so professional and stayed in character at all time, she was a pleasure to work with, she was very interactive with my daughter and the other children, my daughter loved her! This was my first time having a Disney character at our party and it was such a grat experience for my little one, form the moment she called to make entrance, I put her on speaker phone and my daughter heard when I answers the call and Moana said “hi this is Moana” my daughters eyes just lit up and she has the biggest smile ever, it was a mind blowing experience. Working with kathee the owner was also a pleasure, she will make sure everything is perfect. I highly recommended this company and will sure be back.
