We love to hold family-friendly events and we always look forward to watching children interact with the Bunny at Easter,” said Patsy Sanquist, Director of Marketing and Business Development at The Shops at Mission Viejo.
The Shops at Mission Viejo’s Caring Bunny™ event will offer special needs families a subdued environment to participate in the Bunny Photo Experience. Caring Bunny has been developed by Simon and is guided by AbilityPath.org, a national online resource hub and special needs community. Over 90 Simon® properties will host the Caring Bunny this season. Promotional assistance for Caring Bunny has been provided by Autism Speaks.
On Sunday, March 6, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m., many steps will be taken to reduce sensory triggers, creating a more comforting environment for children’s cherished visit with the Bunny. The subdued environment is likely to include (specific elements or aesthetics may vary):
- Turning off in-mall music, stopping escalators located near the photo set, dimming the lights and shutting down fountains for the duration of the event.
- Eliminating queue lines through the use of a numbering system whereby guests approach the set when their number is called.
- Special activities geared toward the needs of the child during the ‘wait’ period to help the child understand what activities will occur during the visit.
Families can reserve a spot for Caring Bunny at www.eventbrite.com/e/caring-bunny-tickets-21392823511?aff=es2.
