Once Upon A Dream:
A whimsical & educational play-center 

An upscale, nurturing, fun, and friendly open-ended entertainment center for children (ages 9 months – 9 years) and their families.  The owner’s long-time dream, the center is designed with an open-ended play area and activities geared toward early to mid- childhood development in order to expand imagination, creativity, and fine and gross motor skills. Our mission is to foster family happiness and deeper connections through playtime between children and their parents in a screen-free zone. Adult's don't forget to wear socks we're a no shoes indoor play house!

Once Upon a Dream will transport you to another world the moment you walk through the door. Our adult guests regularly gasp with delight as they enter the 3000 sq. ft. center for the first time, commenting, “Wow, it’s so clean!” or “it’s so beautiful!” Once children enter, they often start running all over the place with mesmerized excitement at the surprising play area in front of them.

We offer a café that boasts a variety of healthy snacks, like organic juice and milk, yogurt, cheese sticks, hummus, as well as coffee, tea, chips, cookies, and cupcakes.

The center specializes in providing perfect, customizable party packages with special themes and activities for your child’s birthday, baby showers, special event, and seasonal parties. Choose your package, personalize it, and we will take care of the rest! 

Along with open play, Once Upon A Dream also offers parent's short term supervised care for their little ones, what we call our Drop off service. As well as seasonal camps and Parents night out events. Check our online calendar for special events and workshops. Working parents check out our newly added co-working space the Work Room

We are located in Vienna, Virginia, just a few steps away from Tyson's Corner. We offer free WIFI. 

Get back in touch with your inner child, as you and your precious loved ones explore, play, and create together in our special world!
