Caring Bunny
The Shops at Mission Viejo's Caring Bunny™ event, a first at the center, will offer families that have children with special needs a subdued environment to participate in the Bunny Photo Experience. Caring Bunny has been developed by SPG and is guided by AbilityPath.org, a national online resource hub and special needs community. Over 80 Simon® properties will host the Caring Bunny this season.

On Sunday, April 13, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 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 RSVP in advance https://www.eventbrite.com/e/caring-bunny-tickets-11008285077
