Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Is the hotel included in this package?
Answer: YES! $475.00 gets you a hotel room, three character visits and breakfast for four.

Question: What hotel will we be staying at?
Answer: The Homewood Suites on Mills Civic Parkway just south of Jordan Creek Mall. (next to Applebees) Address is 6220 Stagecoach Drive West Des Moines, IA 50266, US. Note: We previously used the HAMPTON Inn and Suites next door but have since moved the package to the Homewood Suites) If this hotel is full and your date is not flexible, we have used other HILTON-brand hotels around the metro.

Question: During the pool party, will the hotel pool be shut down exclusively for us?
Answer: No. Other guests staying at the hotel would be able to access the pool area during your pool party. However, we find that most of the time, other hotel guests are very respectful of the pool party going on and keep their distance. The CLOSER your pool party can start to check in time - the better! (Early checks in times can be requested)

Question: Do the rooms have kitchens?
Answer: Yes! Each suite has a kitchen and a small dining room table.

Question: Does the hotel have a restaurant in it?
Answer: No. Applebees is right outside the door though, and 30+ other restaurants are within 2 miles of the hotel.

Question: Can more than 4 guests stay over?
Answer: No. The rooms are for up to 4 guests total (At least one of those adults must be an adult) In the bedroom there is a large KING SIZE bed. The living room has a full size pull-out couch. If you require MORE than 4 guests to stay over, we can book you an ADDITIONAL room for $150.00 which would get you 4 additional guests. The exception to this is a 5th small child / infant.

Question: Can more than 4 people come to our pool party?
Answer: This is on a case-by-case situation. The hotel usually allows an extra guests or two to come swim if the hotel is not at capacity. You would seek approval for extra swimmers directly with the hotel.

Question: For the pool party, can we choose a mermaid or a princess?
Answer: Either! All of the princess characters have swimwear. If you choose for a mermaid to come we will work out special arrangements so that the little ones do not see her arrive / slip on her fin. #MermaidTrauma

Question: Can we use this package 7 nights a week or just the weekend?

Question: Are there time frame restrictions on the character visits?
Answer: We recommend that your pool party be between 3:00 - 5:30. (Early check in is sometimes an option for this if you want it even sooner!) For the bedtime stories, 9:00 is the latest you can start your visit. For the breakfast visit, choose between 7:30 - 9:30 for your character to arrive.
