We were there in 2008 and in Japan I decided to pick a pearl. My family was scattered throughout the gift shop and I didn't think anything of it. I didn't have a theory on how to pick the pearl. But I ended up with a big one... and they made a big hullabaloo about it. It was funny and it was a moment I'll treasure. I was also 8 weeks pregnant at the time, so every time I wear the necklace, I remember how I had a little pearl growing inside me.

We're heading back to WDW tomorrow and I plan to pick another pearl. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

More pearls

And then all my other pearls that are not set yet. We ended up going back and picking 3 more oysters, and got 2 cream ones in one oyster then the other 2 had 2 purple pearls in each.



Now I have white, pink, purple, black, and cream colored pearls. Just need blue, green, and gold to complete my collection :-)

I just found the pictures I took when I did pick a pearl in May of 2010:









I picked a simple sterling silver setting. It was just a loop that the necklace goes through with a small cz at the top. I don't remember what the actual cost was but I do remember my total being about $50.00.

I just did this last week in Japan at Epcot.

My DD(22) was with me, and my husband took the pictures.
The oyster cutting CM (what do I call her?) asked us to count backward from 3 in Japanese. DD actually did it! The CM asked her how she knew and DD answered that she watched it on Japanese TV. LOL I think the CM was shocked at first and then pleased.

So it was time for me to pick my oyster. Well, DD wanted me to pick a pretty one. However, I knew from reading here to pick the ugliest one I could find. I picked one with whiskers and ugly spots.

The CM opened the oyster, pulled out the pearl, cleaned it and measured it. I got a 7.5mm pearl!

The CM made a big deal about that and played the drum. It was a fun experience.

Early last year I ordered a Cinderella pearl carriage. My pearl barely fits in it. I'll have to get DH to find the pics and upload them later. He's got nearly 3000 pics from our trip.

Question for those who know about the "cinderella cages"....

Instead of the cage going on a necklace can it be put as a charm on a braclet?

Thanks.

I think so. You would have to get a charm ring to attach to the carriage and then to the charm bracelet.

sorry if this has been asked/answered before, but I havent read though all 105 pages....

BUT..can I bring my own mounting, like a necklace, or bracelet, or earings and have Disney mount the pearl I pick onto it, or will they only "mount" my picked pearl on something from their store?

I could see where if brought the Cinderella Carriage that the pearl "sits" in would be fine since they didnt have to actually attach it, but I didnt know if attaching it would be problem..

THANKS!!

and Im dragging my boys and DH to pick my pearl in 2012 when we go!!

Thanks for the idea!!

I got a 7.5mm one too! I had bought three Cinderella cages, one for my mom, daughter, and me. They said in the description on ebay they'd hold up to an 8mm but I doubt it would. Mine, like yours, barely fits. The cage isn't closed all the way, but since it is on the chain it's not going anywhere, so it's OK.

DD got a 7.25mm, and Mom got a 6.5mm, and we all put them in our cages. I also got a sterling silver flamingo pearl cage from eBay I'm taking with me when we go back in February, and once again I'm picking the ugliest, hairiest fellow in the tank for it!

Is Ebay the only place to find the cinderella carriage?

Or do they have them at WDW?

I'm pretty sure I read on this thread that taking your own mounting wasn't possible. Something about liability issues?

Have fun!

Ironically, they don't sell the cindy carriages at WDW.
