Picking a Pearl

Well I’m back in cold dreary Ohio, but I definitely had an AMAZING trip to Disney this past weekend!  The 1/2 marathon was awesome, spending time with my mom and my aunt was awesome, and seeing John Stamos at Epcot was DEFINITELY AWESOME!

I will do a full report tomorrow on the highlights and overview of our trip, however today I wanted to share a really fun experience that I’ve always wanted to try.  While at Epcot, in the world showcase, we visited Japan.  In the Mitsukoshi gift shop there is an area where you can pick a pearl from an oyster.  There are two tanks of water where the oysters are kept, and you can pick from the many oysters.  They will open it for you and you keep the pearl inside.  The price is $17 after tax and you have no idea what type of pearl you will get.  Once they open the pearl you’ll see the size and color.  You can then just keep the pearl, or they have different jewelry settings.  I chose to have my pearl set in a ring.

I had my mom video the experience as it was happening so you can view my “Picking a Pearl” experience here-

I definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a unique experience!
