I have two DS who probably won't want to pick out pearls...I guess I'm on my own with this one. I can't wait to see the settings in person!

There are Mickey cages? When I was at the Japan pavillion a couple weeks ago, I didn't see any settings that had Mickey on them. Maybe they are at DTD? I would be interested in seeing what they look like. I love jewelry that has a subtle Mickey on it!

I used to have pick-a-pearl parties at home years ago - my DS, between 7 and 13 I'd say during those parties, LOVED to pick out the oysters and then poke around inside to find the pearls! You never know...

Oh yeah, the prying open and digging the pearl out part was pretty gross. I imagine that would be right up a boy's alley!

hmmm..perhaps they will be interested.
Do they open the oysters or can we? One of the pictures in this thread showed the CM opening the oyster.

I'm hoping they wash the pearl before they set it ?

I know people got them on DCL, so I presumed they'd have them at WDW.

Sorry I got my Mickey cage on DCL

It came in a box with a can with the oyster in the can. DH got it for me for my birthday on the cruise. I think it was $29.99 or maybe $39.99. I love it and wear it all the time. After seeing the other choices at the world, No way would I trade mickey. I would like to get the miney one also thoe. She was just like mickey but had a red bow inbetween the ears. I have never even taken a pic. of it. I would have to figure out how to post one here, by uploading it to the dis sight and all but might work on it. Mum

Have each DS pick an oyster. Then you can have something made from each pearl, and the boys will have been part of it.

I LOVE this!! Plain and simple, and yet somehow elegant! Thanks for sharing!

It is my understanding that the oysters are "seeded". They are then xrayed to ensure that a pearl is inside. I don't think they are "pre-loaded".

Also, by the time the oyster gets to the tank, it is dead. There is no "oyster killing" going on at Disney! LOL.
