I did this for the first time last week. It was a neat, fairly inexpensive "extra" to do while at Disney. I chose 2 oysters (one ugly, hairy one and one less ugly). Ended up with a 7 1/4mm white and a 7 3/4mm gold pearl. I didn't have them set at the time becuase I didn't know what I wanted - hoping I can return in the fall with receipt and have it done then????

I never would have known about this attraction if it hadn't been for these boards and picking out the ugliest and hairy one. I watched the You Tube videos and I am looking forward to doing this when we go in December. Hope I get a gold one. The store looks amazing also.

Josh at easyWDW posted pics of all of the settings. http://www.easywdw.com/uncategorized...ngs/#more-8572 The pics are near the bottom of the page, so you have to scroll down quite a bit.

Just got back and did pick a pearl at Japan while there. I got twins! All the credit to my DH, he picked the oyster. I had earrings made.

Just back this week.

I'm embarrassed to say we did this 3x with multiple pearls each time... and they kept remembering me

First time was by the far best.

My 7 year old got a 7 1/2 gold pearl - it's gorgeous. It looked like actual gold! My 5 year old scored a 7 blue pearl. I snagged twin silvers! So excited! I always hope for a blue or silver and I snagged 2! And my lovely DH - he tries every time or a black pearl. What did he get? The whitest white I've ever seen! He was bitter

The rest were all whites.

Beautiful earrings!! My DD and I did this at Epcot and had such a great time. We are going to DL this summer, and she asked me if we could do it there! I searched the thread and saw posts from a few years back saying there was a kiosk at DTD at DL. Can anybody confirm if it is still there? Anybody had experiences there?

Is it possible to pick an oyster and not get a pearl?

No, they apparently X-Ray them first to make sure there is a pearl in there.

I doubt it, since they're cultured, but if that happened I'm 100% sure they'd let you pick another oyster!

I don't know but I used my KTTW card to pay, so if you are staying onsite a work around would be use kttw card to pay and use Disney GC to pay on rm acct.
