    My daughter and I are counting down the days to our special Christmas and New Year vacay in 15 days! I have been researching unique things to do- and to bring back. I found the pick-a-pearl activity at Epcot/Japan. Is this still available? Also, what other

    Hi Adrienne,

    Congratulations, your trip is just around the corner!  What a special vacation you have planned indeed.  You will be happy to know that Pick-A-Pearl is still at the Japan pavilion area in World Showcase at Epcot.  When visiting this pavilion you should allow plenty of time because there is a lot of wonderful merchandise at this location and it is always on my family's "must-do" list.

    Below are some other fun ideas for you and your daughter to consider for unique souvenirs:
    • Personalized Disney ornaments: You can find a selection of ornaments at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe at Magic Kingdom and Disney's Days of Christmas at Disney Springs
    • Haunted Portrait:  Ghostly portraits at Memento Mori gift shop near The Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom
    • Personalized Chinese parasol: Located at a kiosk in the China area at Epcot
    • Star Wars merchandise: Intergalactic merchandise can be found at Tatooine Traders and Watto's Grotto at Disney's Hollywood Studios
    • Monogrammed Mickey Ears: You can monogram ears at The Chapeau in Magic Kingdom, at Five and Dime at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and at MouseGear at Epcot
    • Pressed Pennies:  Perhaps my first obsession is pressing pennies throughout the Walt Disney World Resort
    • Silhouette - You can have a silhouette made of your daughter at Disney Springs, at Epcot near the France pavilion, and at Magic Kingdom on Main Street and Liberty Square
    • Henna tattoo - My daughters always come home with a new henna tattoo (usually with a Hidden Mickey) from Art of Henna near Morocco at Epcot
    I hope this gives you some fun ideas Adrienne!  One thing is for sure, you will not have to look far to find some unique and fun things to do on vacation.
