Top 10 Disney Mother-Daughter Experiences That Should Be On Your Bucket List

Mother Daughter Bucket List

Life is crazy, full of busy schedules and distractions at every turn. Before we know it, we blink and our children are grown. Time is certainly not on our side and holds no prejudice, skipping away from each and every one of us in equal measure, only confirming that we need to make our moments count. Creating lasting memories with our family that we can hold onto and treasure is essential and all it takes is a little faith, trust, and pixie dust…and a small amount of planning of course.

They say that a daughter is just a little girl who grows up to be your best friend. Whether your daughter is a little princess and still living at home or queen of her own castle (older and moved out), there is no age limit to the amount of fun you can both have at Walt Disney World! Here are our top ten mother-daughter bucket list experiences at Disney.

1. Pick-A-Pearl

This unique and engaging experience is sure to create a cherished memory. You can find a Pick-A-Pearl station at Epcot’s Japan Pavilion, Downtown Disney, The Beach Club Resort or Blizzard Beach. I highly recommend going to Epcot’s Japan Pavilion, as the experience there is unparalleled. Here, you get to choose an oyster out of a large water tank. There will be great build-up to the reveal—drums, cheering, even perhaps a countdown in Japanese! When the oyster is then opened, you get to set your eyes on your very own pearl—all unique in their own right. Some are colored, some are quite large and you may even find more than one pearl inside your oyster! They are weighed and then either placed into one of their gorgeous jewelry settings (for an extra fee) or given to you in a small plastic bag. I’ve read so many excellent reviews about this experience and have every intention of making this a tradition with my own daughter. One reviewer said they let their young daughter pick out two oysters containing beautiful pearls, setting them into beautiful earrings and saving them for her wedding day. Another reviewer said they simply have it done each visit, allowing their child to build a beautiful collection of shimmering, shiny pearls. This is a perfect mother-daughter outing for all ages and the options of what you can do with your pearls are endless! Create a mother-daughter charm bracelet or matching necklaces! The cost is around $16 to pick an oyster.
