Each day a handful of paint brushes are hidden all over the island. Most sites I have seen say about 4-6 brushes so I am going to go with that. Cast members hide the brushes and usually they are scooped up pretty quickly. Many sites suggest you go over on the first raft of the day in order to find one of the brushes (apparently the people who posted thought they weren't so hard to find). I tell you what though. I have a completely different story. After reading about the paint brushes I was determined to find one. I looked early, I looked late, I looked mid-day. I have looked in rain, I have looked on clear days. The one day I (finally) found my brush was the most packed day of the summer in hot weather at 7 at night We had scoured the island and just when I had about given up there it was (I won't say where the brush was found because well, that would take the fun out of it for everyone who reads this post) but, I'll just say that a little child would have had a hard time finding it without a grown up...hmmm!
    Latest buzz is this was stopped in January? Any one know?

    I too have LOOKED AND LOOKED. I figured this was one more of the little Disney secrets that had gone away. Glad to hear they are still out there. Does anyone know if they replaced Cinderella's stallion on the carousel. Last time we wree there, it had been removed because too many guest were pushing and shoving to get to it.

    I snapped a photo of Cindy's stallion when I was there in August.

    Last I heard they discontinued the paintbrush when Railroad" onclick="replacer_hook(4)" target="_blank" href="http://www.talkdisney.com/forums/big-thunder.htm">BTMR went down for refurb, and didn't bring it back.

    I was there in June and we asked a cast member on the island about them. He told us that had to stop doing it because people were taking risks when climbing to search for them and were getting injured. Was disappointed because we'd already spent about 20 minutes searching!
