ABOUT US

Once Upon An Island opened in 2015 with a mission to create unique character experiences and everyday magic on a more intimate level.

No lines waiting to greet your favorite character for only a few minutes.

At Once Upon An Island, we invite you to sit down for tea with your favorite princess, or swim into our magical salon to turn into a mermaid or princess yourself!

Once Upon An Island remains the only daily, small venue character experiences in Southern California. Both a destination of its own for travelers and a regular celebrity favorite, Once Upon An Island is an experience all it's own full of unique and imaginative play opportunities daily!

Swim in today for a magical play date, or to plan your next magical birthday party!

We are open for play 7 days a week by appointment
