Paint Brushes - Tom Sawyer Island

Are there still paint brushes hidden on Tom Sawyer's Island each day? If so, what do you get if you turn one in?

Thanks!

This is discontinued.

Rumor is that they might start doing
this again after Big Thunder returns to
operation following current refurb.

When you find a brush, your family gets a
FastPass, usually for Big Thunder or Splash Mtn.

Since January. Officially expected to open late May. Unofficially, it might take a few months longer.

That's one of the rumors going around. But it's also being said that they've been stopped because people were starting to do some dangerous things trying to find them. From altercations between guests to taking risks running around trying to find them. Apparently the behavior of a few was becoming a safety issue that couldn't be ignored.

It remains to be seen which is true but the refurb of BTMMR just doesn't seem to be the reason, the still could have given out FPs for Splash.
