The Bunny Photo Experience begins Friday, March 24 at 10 a.m. and runs through Thursday, April 14 at 8 p.m. at Center Court. Kids will have the chance to visit with the Bunny and take home a treasured snapshot of the fun occasion.
The sponsors for the 2017 Bunny Photo Experience are The Gymboree Corporation – including its Gymboree and Crazy 8 children’s clothing brands and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment which is celebrating the highly-anticipated release of “Sing,” available on Digital HD March 3rd and on Blu-ray DVD March 21st.

“We love to hold family-friendly events and we always look forward to watching children interact with the Bunny at Easter,” said Denise Murray, director of marketing and business development at Briarwood Mall.
Briarwood 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 March 26 and April 2 at 9 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.

Your furry friends won’t be left out of the fun, either! On Sunday, March 26 and Sunday, April 9 at 6 p.m., guests are invited to bring their pets to pose with the Bunny. All pets must remain on a leash or in a secure carrier. Guests and their pets are asked to enter through the H&M mall entrance located between Sears and Von Maur.
