My three year old daughter is obsessed with Redd, the new lady pirate on the "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride at Disneyland. Wishing Well Entertainment made a PERFECT birthday video greeting just for her, customizing their Anne Bonney female pirate character into Redd, and mentioning that all the pirates at Disneyland were so excited to see my daughter again soon, exactly as I requested. The actress did a phenomenal job and looked absolutely perfect. My kid has watched this lovely three-minute "Magic Mirror" video about a million times already, with a look of absolute wonder and enchantment. Worth every penny, Wishing Well really made my girl's weird quarantine birthday so much better. Communication was prompt and professional; I would recommend this company to anyone!

With just about any parties and gathering suspended or canceled, it has been really wonderful to give the gift of comfort to a couple littles in my life. Wishing Well Entertainment began offering virtual comfort chat and video messages and I couldn't resist. I sent up a comfort chat for two friends with families and they were THRILLED to be able to talk to the Snow Queen over Zoom with their preschool class! The pictures of their faces were absolutely magical and it brings me such joy (and relief) to be able to bring just a little magic to children's lives in this crazy and unsettled time.

I can not say enough for the quality and character of this company. In this time of stay at home and no parties they provided my family a way to celebrate two special occasions. My son's 6th birthday was on April 10th and we got him a special video message of one of his favorite characters. The message was personal and fun. She even sang to him. My wedding anniversary was today April 12th and I had a similar surprise message waiting for my wife from Marilyn Monroe. Not being able to go out and celebrate either of these special events made us all so grateful to get a little joy through these wonderful videos.

I've had the honor of working directly with Kalinda (business owner) on TWO separate occasions - both times, she exceeded all expectations. Her character representation was phenomenal both times. She was easy to work with, full of energy, and an absolute HIT on each occasion.

So if you want to know the short version - two thumbs up. Marilyn and Lucille (you won't regret it)

If you want more detail... Okay, story time...

The company I worked for hired Wishing Well Entertainment.

I'm in sales... Attending conferences is our best opportunity to generate leads and get new business opportunities... At those conferences we have a trade show booth (along with many other companies).

Each company struggles to fight for the attention of attendees with various "draws" - something to draw people to your booth as they walk by - in hope of starting conversation which will lead to networking opportunities.

You think you know someone who is clever, witty, and can make people laugh...? Not until you see Kalinda in action. She could find an engaging way to make ANY onlooker smile and draw them into our booth for a conversation - cleverly transitioning her conversations toward us sales reps for a chance to network.

Our executive secretary had the brilliant idea of hiring Kalinda to appear as Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball to appeal to the audience of attendees (ages 40-70).

She was the talk of the conference - drawing people in with her high level of energy which she kept up the entire time she was with us.

I had multiple sales reps from other companies comment on how great she was and what a great job she did playing each role and bringing in people to our booth.

Thank you Wishing Well Entertainment and Parties for such a great birthday experience! I love how you are meeting the moment by having your characters available via zoom! I sent out an unusual request for Charles Pa Ingalls to time travel and visit a friend for her birthday, knowing it would be a longshot but you replied right away with a perfect actor and your team knocked it out of the park. Charles Ingalls time traveled into our Zoom birthday party and made it such a special night! He was so fun.We had such wonderful time and it turned and ordinary Zoom gathering into a night of memories we won't forget. These are interesting times where we can't be in person to celebrate all the milestones. I appreciate that you were able to help us create such a meaningful experience.

This company is absolutely wonderful! We have booked their performers for my daughter's last 2 birthdays (when she turned 3 and 4), and plan to continue booking with them into the future. We first had Moana and then Elsa (in her new outfit from Frozen 2). Our entire experiences have been top notch all the way through. From booking to the parties to the outfits and the performers themselves, everything has been perfect. The performers are able to embody their characters while seamlessly story telling, doing magic shows, face painting, and managing a crowd of excited 3 year olds... I just can't say enough good things about them! We love Wishing Well and look forward to our next party with them!

We had Ariel for our daughter's 3rd birthday today. She was soooo great with all the little ones! She did bubbles, player games, and did magic tricks. My daughter was in heaven! Wishing Well was easy to work with there was no guessing at all. They are professional and their contract is very clear! We would definitely have characters from them again!

I can't recommend Kalinda and Wishing Well Entertainment enough. They made my twins birthday a truly special day. Speaking for the kids, my family and all guests. Our Rapunzel was amazing and my daughter talked about Rapunzel until the moment she fell asleep. So many guests made a point to reach out to me during the party and tell me how amazing Rapunzel ( Danielle ) was. All of the guests had high praise for her and a few guests asked if we had hired her from Disneyland.

I could go on but to say that Wishing Well Entertainment made our day a truly magical day is an understatement.

There are so many character companies but if you want the best use this company. Our Rapunzel was so great with all the kids and Kalinda is super professional with every detail.

Customer Testimonials

OMG I don't even know where to start... I booked the snow queen for my daughters 2nd birthday party at her daycare and I swear it was money well spent! From the snow queens arrival to when she left she was so beautiful and amazing! My daughter was in shock upon the snow queens arrival and definitely warmed up after all she was dressed up as the snow queens sister. All of the snow queens activities were age appropriate to my daughters daycare class. Snow queen payed very well attention to ALL the kids in my daughters class no one was left out with more focus on the birthday girl of course which was a super super plus because I know I wouldn't be able to do that haha. The snow queens singing was phenomenal! I'm telling you I have seen some princesses in my lifetime at parties but none come close to this snow queen NONE.


It just so happened that Belle passed through our neighborhood today and stopped to take a picture with my (very shy) daughter. She was beyond gracious, personable, and looked every bit the part of a regal princess- dress, makeup, hair, mannerisms all very convincing. I can't wait to book her for an event and will be passing the word around to other parents in the area.


We hired Marilyn Monroe from Wishing Well Entertainment and was very impressed with how much she truly looked and acted like her. She stayed in character the entire time. It was for my brothers birthday who is a very big fan of Marilyn. I know he will never forget what a great time he had because of her. Before I hired her I looked at some of the videos online and was so impressed with how great her voice was and in person she sounded the same. I can't wait for another chance to be able to hire her again. Thanks so much Wishing Well and Marilyn.


We had Scarlet here with us at our daughter's 2nd birthday party. I cannot say enough good things about her. Not only did my daughter love love love her (kissing and hugging her non-stop), even I feel tears in my eyes seeing her. She is the BEST snow white I've ever seen!! Her acting was spotless. I e-mailed her with some request of singing snow white theme songs, and she did those very very well! She replied to my e-mail fast and super nice too.(it's like i'm actually e-mailing a real princess)
We love her and she would definitely be the princess for next year as well!!!
Thank you Scarlet for making the day a perfect day for all of us. We will always cherish this memory!


We had Woody (aka Jared), and let me tell you...he was amazing!!! To entratain almost 30-4 years old kids thats not an easy job!
He was happy, sensetiv to the kids requests,funny and super professional!!!
One more thing-Kalinda was great, very responsive and gave all the information needed to make me feel relaxed before the event.
He made Leah so happy
We will definitely use there services again!!!


We just had my daughter's 4th birthday party yesterday and Elsa (Danielle) was the special guest. Wishing Well Entertainment was professional, organized, responsive and user friendly from the moment I called to inquire about availability. Danielle was above and beyond amazing. My daughter got overwhelmed when the whole party starting singing "Happy Birthday" and she ran off to her room crying and Danielle took it upon herself to go and check on Mia in her room and spend some quality time with her. That is more than a performance; that is a wonderful human being. I would highly recommend Wishing Well Entertainment and will definitely use their services again in the future.


We just hired Wishing Wells Arabian Princess (Princess Jasmine) and I have to say she's is absolutely amazing! She had all the little kids at my daughters party well entertained and they all ranged from ages 2-10. I've hired entertainment else where and I must say she was definitely the best! Even when adults asked her questions to try and break her out of character she stuck to her Jasmine identity. It was amazing, thank you! We definitely recommend!
Hiring was easy as well as l all my emails and questions were answered promptly. Thank you all


My daughter had a pirate/mermaid themed birthday party at the beginning of Jan. we had the park picked out and ready to go and we woke up the morning of the party it was raining!! we contacted Kalinda to ask if they would still be able to come out (since it was an outdoor party) and entertain if we rented a canopy, she said of course not a problem at all and eased my fears and to our relief the party was still on. Both characters arrived on time, fully dressed and in character....and they never broke character the entire time! They immediately came into the park and interacted with the kids.. captain Jack Sparrow ran into the park took over a pirate ship and led the kids in a pirate oath, sword lessons, and a game of tug o war....Ariel also never let the rain dampen her spirits (she told the kids how her father in the sea sent the rain so she could be on land... hahaha)... additionally she went on and did the most beautiful face painting, a magic show, they both made time to interact and pose for pictures with every child (and we had 60!) finally leading all the kids to sing Happy Birthday and get cupcakes. Ariel and captain jack sparrow were so talented, even the adults were completely entertained and impressed... I was absolutely floored definitely a good investment..Thank You!
