Woodfield Mall provides an opportunity for those with all spectrums of special needs and their families to enjoy this time-honored holiday tradition through a sensory-friendly Caring Bunny events in association with Autism Speaks. Caring Bunny will occur on two consecutive Sundays, March 31 and April 7, from 8 am to 10 am, prior to mall opening.
During Caring Bunny events, many steps are 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 with a numbering system whereby guests approach the set when their number is called.
- Special activities geared toward the needs of guests during the ‘wait’ period.
Guests can register in advance at simon.com/caringbunny. Woodfield Mall’s Bunny Photo Experience will also share the heart of the Easter Bunny by collecting donations for Autism Speaks throughout the season.
