What happens if I choose stay in the Party Room past my time?

Can I open presents during the party?
Sorry, no. There is a great concern of the toys leaving the room and getting under the feet of other guests and younger children. On top of this, lost toys and the hazardous choking materials with today’s commercial packaging is unsettling and puts every child at risk. There has been a history of children removing the toys from the room and either having lost or having had them taken by other children who see the opened gifts. Both resulted in a very unhappy child and we have seen the structure damaged from abuse.
