The Pearl Factory: A Unique Experience Found in Downtown Disney

There are many, many, many things to do in Disney World, one the coolest experience I had was ‘hunting’ for my own oyster, harvesting the pearl and making it into a necklace… It’s a company called The Pearl Factory and they have a kiosk in Down Town Disney (near pooh corner).  You simply show up and for $15.99 you can harvest an oyster and find a pearl. 


Here’s me giddy with joy that I am going to find a pearl… you are free to pick whatever oyster you wish but, the jeweller gave me a hint to pick the ugliest oyster… I picked both ugly & large!  You are guaranteed to find a pearl or you get to pick again and on a rare occasion you can find 2 pearls in an oyster! 

Here’s my Oyster- NOW, let’s see what’s inside!  But first you must repeat a traditional Hawaiian saying,  and tap three times.  Mele Kalikinaka to me!!!


Here’s what I found in my large, ugly oyster… They measured and assessed my pearl – it’s a beautiful, size 8 pearl with a touch of pink!  It’s worth approx $180.00!  The colour of my pearl represents  passion & beauty.

Now you have the choice to just take your pearl or have it set into a piece of jewellery – they have everything from rings to necklaces and more, and the settings start at $10 for a costume jewellery setting to several hundred dollars for gold with diamond accents.  It’s such a valuable pearl I decided on spending a bit more but opted out on the diamonds. 

  Mahalo nui loa!  (Thank you very much)
