Butterfly Wonderland is proud to be an officially designated Pal Place, which means we’ve taking steps to be more inclusive for guests with autism and other intellectual and developmental disabilities. By partnering with Pal, thanks to The Butterfly Wonderland Foundation, we created a video social story so you can see what to expect, insider tips and a sensory scale to help you plan your visit while you’re at Butterfly Wonderland.
