We are off on another adventure, this time to Florida for a few weeks. While we are so excited to see another part of the country, we are a bit bummed to miss my sweet niece, little A’s 5th birthday.

When I told Emmy that we were not going to be there for A’s special day she turned to me and said “let’s celebrate early before we go”. I thought that was a brilliant idea! Emmy and I talked about how we should celebrate and she didn’t bat an eye when she said “a Chuck E. Cheese’s party of course”. So that is what we did…

Back in January, we had Emmy’s 6th birthday party at our local Chuck E. Cheese’s, and she said it was the best party ever. I have to agree. There is something extra awesome for both parents and kids, about having a party at a place that you can “just show up” to party at. No planning or stressing for the parents, and guaranteed fun for the kids with all the yummy food and games.

Since we were going to be gone on her actual birthday, I wanted to go all out with all of the VIP options. Because Chuck E. Cheese’s is so reasonably priced, I was able to keep adding more and more fun to her party with the Mega Star Package. This package includes a pinata, extra coins, ice cream cups, a goody bag for each child, star collectible cups, and more! I also ordered a cake for her when I ordered online and they handled it all!

Another way to make your party VIP to the max is to book it for early on Saturday or Sunday mornings. That you get the VIP option where your party has the whole store to themselves! That is going full VIP status!

When you book a birthday party, you get your very own party host.

Since I planned and booked my party online, our host already had everything ready to go. When we got there, she went over everything to make sure that it all still sounded good, and then we were off partying. While the food was being made (the pizzas are prepared in house and are not frozen) the kids played games and went on the rides. All throughout the party, our host was right there with us making sure everything was perfect and that the birthday girl felt extra special.

Before we knew it, the food was there. Staying true to going all out, I ordered a huge party platter that everyone loved! I also included the delicious salad bar…

And of course the pizza too! If you haven’t had a Chuck E. Cheese’s pizza in a while, you are in for a treat! We had five children and six adults and our three pizzas were devoured quickly!

After pizza, it was time for the big guy himself, Chuck E. Cheese to come out and help celebrate A’s party with us. He sang happy birthday, and was there as we blew out the candles!

After that, little A got to go in the ticket blaster. She had so much fun, and Emmy was giving her hints to collect the most tickets. We all rooted her on!

She had no trouble catching a big handful of them. Then it was time for her to count all those tickets and pick out some toys with her winnings.

Our party went by way too quickly, and all us adults did was sit back and enjoy seeing how happy the kids all were. When it was time to go, we all had to go through their security step to make sure we all had the same stamp on our hands. This step ensures that the kids all go home with the right families. I love that extra piece of mind that it gives.
