So…do you remember my post about Tom Sawyer’s Island and the paintbrushes that the cast members would hide most mornings for guests to find and return for fastpasses? Well it appears those pesky Walt Disney World cast members have hid those paintbrushes pretty well this time. Rumor has it that they have finally put an end to the scavenger hunt.
I think it is a shame to do away with it because it doesn’t take anytime to do and it is a great and free way to plus your vacation especially if you have little ones. I saw tons of kids running around looking for the coveted paint brushes while I was frantically running back and forth across the island trying to get my hands on one before them!…yeah, I should be ashamed.
I have heard of people stealing the paintbrushes which is a shame and I can see Disney putting and end to it because of that but is a shame either way. Plus I think it was a great way to get people on to the island who may not go otherwise.
I will see what I can do to find out if this is rumor or fact on my next trip. Just remember, if you want to look for the paintbrushes, ask a cast member if they hid them that morning before you do laps around the island just to find out they hid them behind a locked door on the dock.
