TERMS AND CONDITIONS


Happily Ever Parties does not claim to offer any officially licensed or copyrighted characters.


Booking Down payment is non-refundable, once availability has been confirmed.  


Any amount paid to the costume character on the date of the event (including the tip) is also non-refundable.  


It is the client's responsibility to know the correct amount that is due to the character and to pay that amount at the event, in cash.  Any over payment is considered a tip to the entertainer, and is non-refundable. 


If event is canceled, we must be notified in writing. No refunds will be given if purchaser cancels a confirmed booking, for any reason. Please have an alternate plan, in the event of inclement weather.


There are no guarantees that we will be able to provide a character if you decide to change the date, time or location, due to weather or for any other reason. We will make a reasonable attempt to do so, but if we do not have a character available for your changed date/time/location, then the event is considered canceled by the purchaser, and there will be no refund.


If you reschedule your event, and we ARE able to provide a character for your new date/time/location, there will be a $25 (per character) reschedule fee, which you will need to pay prior to your event.  (We reserve costumes, supplies & people based on the deposit and turn away others who wish to book for the same date).


Once character(s) arrives at the event, balance is due, regardless of weather, fire, or other occurrences that may arise to prevent character(s) from performing at event.  Please have a back-up plan in the event of inclement weather. 


If a situation arises that makes the performer feel unsafe or the performer is being mistreated, we reserve the right for the performer to leave the event at that point, and there will be no refund. Performer must be paid in full, in this scenario. 


Balance due must be paid in cash to costume character(s) at the event. (Tips are appreciated). 


Please pay with exact change, as characters do not carry cash.  Any over-payment is considered a tip to the entertainer, and is non-refundable.


If you wish to keep the entertainer(s) beyond the scheduled end time (and they are available to stay longer), you will need to pay them each an additional $30 in cash for 20-30 minutes over time or $60 in cash for 40 to 60 minutes of over time. Failure to pay for over-time is considered theft of services and is a violation of Texas state law.


THE CLIENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR KEEPING TRACK OF THE TIME. CHARACTERS DO NOT WEAR A WRIST WATCH OR CARRY A CELL PHONE. 


Character(s) will each need one 5-minute break per hour for indoor parties or two 5-minute breaks per hour for outdoor events.
