Treasured Souvenirs: Pick-A-Pearl at Walt Disney World
There are many creative and off the beaten path experiences that you partake in at the Walt Disney World Resort. One of my favorites is the "Pick-A-Pearl" spots that can be found in a variety of locations around the property. For princesses both young and old Pick-A-Pearl can be an exciting and memorable souvenirs that will last through the ages.
If you're looking for an elegant yet affordable keepsake at Walt Disney World, why not give Pick-A-Pearl a try. Pick-A-Pearl spots can be found at Epcot's Japan Pavilion, Downtown Disney and at the Beach Club Resort; with the Japan Pavilion being the favorite amongst many guests. No matter which location you chose, you can be sure that it's a suspenseful choice for shopping fun.
Pick-A-Pearl costs start at about $17 for the opportunity to choose an oyster and find what treasure lies inside. From a tank of oysters you can pick you're favorite one, they all look similar in the tank but depending on the depth that they were grown at in nature and length of time they spent there you can discover a rainbow of pearly surprises. Sizes generally range from 6 to 6.5 mm and up, the colors could be white, cream, pink, gray, or blue. I usually get white or creamy pearls, but only chance knows what awaits you inside!
Once you have your beautiful pearl, these locations offer a wide variety of settings options (at an additional cost) for all price ranges to have your treasure placed into a jewelry piece that it can be worn for years in the future. You may also simply take your new pearl home in a silk bag and save it until you have enough matching pearls to create a more magnificent jewel, earrings or necklace.
I've had a fondness for pearls since I was a small girl, and any chance I have to add to my collection is fantastic in my book! My husband took me to the Beach Club location to help celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. Do you have a collection of pearl trinkets? Have you taken a chance and picked your own pearl?
