Has anyone seen a detailed map of WDW's Tom Sawyer Island? I found a paintbrush last week and I would like to see what the place that I found it at was called. It was a building with a huge set of rotating gears in it. Any help would be appreciated!!!

I think that was the windmill you are referring to.

I have a map, and the only thing that I can see that it might be is Harper's Mill.....

We have just visited Tom Sawyers Island for the 1st time this past June. Didn't even know about the paint brushes until reading on here. It was so hot and the cs was closed over there so we didn't stay long hope to do it again and actually look for the paint brushes.

My kids have never found a paint brush but they love TSI. Its a great break from the rush of the MK.

I went out to Tom Sawyer's Island yesterday on the first raft to find a paintbrush. After 30 minutes of searching, I asked the raft driver about the paintbrushes and he said that they were not put out today. Has anyone else heard of this happening and if so does it happen often? Just wondering....

I had heard rumblings about it on another WDW website so I decided to show up for the first raft of the day (usually 10:00 am) and ask a cast member. Here's the story : Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, and Becky Thatcher are tired of painting the white-picket fences on the island so they hide their paintbrushes around the island for guests to find. In turning the paintbrush in to the raft captain, a Disney reward is won, usually a front-of-the-line access pass for your entire party to either Splash Mountain or Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The paintbrush that I found had a blue handle with dried white paint on the bristles and was approx. 6 inches long. I have a photo of it but I can't figure how to attach it. I found it in Harper's Mill on the rigt side of the island. Good luck!!!
