The Florida Mall is hosting its annual Easter celebration festivities, offering families the chance to participate in traditional and unique seasonal events.
Save time and avoid the line with Bunny by Appointment! Now you can reserve your magical moment with Bunny online.
The Bunny Photo Experience begins Friday March 9th at 10 a.m and runs through Saturday March 31st at 8:30 p.m in Center Court outside of the Dining Pavilion.
Kids will have the chance to visit with the Bunny and take home a treasured snapshot of the fun occasion. Families who purchase a photo package will receive a complimentary children’s ticket* to visit the Crayola Experience.
*While supplies last. Only redeemable for children’s tickets.
The Florida Mall’s Caring Bunny event will offer families that have children with special needs a subdued environment to participate in the Bunny Photo Experience. Caring Bunny, the largest program of its kind, 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 11th from 9 – 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.
Additionally, hop on over to The Florida Mall for an Hoppy Easter Brunch on Saturday March 24th from 10 a.m – 12 p.m in Center Court outside of the Dining Pavilion. Every-bunny will have the opportunity to enjoy an assortment of brunch items, kids crafts and activities, and special offers for Bunny photos during this free event. To attend, please RSVP here.
