    Is the pick a Pearl reopen in the Japan Pavilion at Epcot??

    Hi Kayla,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question!

    I’ve always thought the Pick A Pearl opportunity at Mitsukoshi Department Store in Japan at EPCOT was such a cool experience! Unfortunately, this experience hasn’t returned at this time. 

    While you can’t Pick A Pearl in the Mitsukoshi Department Store, you can still enjoy the store when the World Showcase opens until around Park close. I absolutely love exploring the Japan pavilion at EPCOT and Mitsukoshi is one of the coolest features. You can check out Japanese snacks, drinks and other fun merchandise. 

    On the Walt Disney World Resort website, I am seeing another Pearl opportunity, however the hours of operation aren’t listed. If you have some flexibility in your schedule, you could venture over to the Pearl Factory Kiosk - Disney Springs Marketplace to see if you’re able to pick a pearl there! 

    While I don’t know the hours of operation, if you’re heading to Disney Springs at any point in your trip, you should check to see if the kiosk is open. The kiosk is located on the water across from the Marketplace Train and Disney’s Pin Traders (a little past World of Disney). If you search “Pearl Factory Kiosk – Disney Springs Marketplace” in the My Disney Experience mobile app, you should see the option for a map or directions come up. Again, this is subject to availability, but worth exploring a bit if you’re in the Disney Springs area!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your upcoming trip; it’ll be here before you know it. If you have other vacation questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
