Round Rock Premium Outlets invites children with special needs and their families for a special photo experience with Caring Bunny in an environment set up to support the sensory, physical, and other developmental needs of kids with all abilities. Caring Bunny will visit on Sunday, March 18, 2018 from 9:00 am – 10:30 am at Round Rock Premium Outlets, offering families an opportunity to enjoy a festive experience. There will be no lines, no crowds, no music, just lots of fun!
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.
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.
Visits with the Easter Bunny are always free. Photo packages may vary.
