We are planning a trip with me and my parents, my 13yr old cousin and her parents, and my best friend who hasn't been to Disney in over 10 years. Before I start, let me explain about my cousin... She is Disney-OBSESSED! I mean, I love Disney too, (I'd be perfectly content to live in Cinderella's Castle ) but my cousin loves it even more and has been in the range of 10-15+ times. Anyways, she was researching and found something about paintbrushes that you can find on Tom Sawyer island and that if you find a paintbrush, you get some kind of prize or Fastpass-like ticket for any ride. Now I'm all for it, but the time of the year that we're going isn't going to be very busy anyway. Plus, I still have my friend who hasn't been in 10 years to think about; I don't want her to miss out on seeing things because we're searching for a paintbrush that may not be worth the effort to find. Which if that's the case, then they can go search (since my cousin's heart is set on it) and my friend and I would go ride other rides. So my question basically is, Are the "Tom Sawyer Island Paintbrushes" worth searching for? Any tips or even your personal experiences would be extremely helpful.
