    Is there any chance that the paintbrush game will return to Tom Sawyer Island? We never looked on previous trips and I think the kids would love hunting, even if there is no “fast pass”.

    Hi there, Jaclyn! Thanks for taking the time to send in your question to planDisney!

    Scavenger hunts are a great way to take a mid-day break from waiting in attraction queues. Years ago, Cast Members stashed away paint brushes each morning around Tom Sawyer's Island for Mouseketeers to find. When turned in, guests would receive a complimentary FastPass. Sadly, the game ended in 2013; it unexpectedly returned briefly in 2020, but the lucky seeker received a fun souvenir certificate instead of a FastPass. Unfortunately, there aren't any indications this activity on Tom's hideaway will return. However, I heartily recommend A Pirate's Adventure – Treasures of the Seven Seas, the only remaining scavenger hunt at Magic Kingdom Park.

    I have a few other suggestions for you, Jaclyn. EPCOT is also home to a seasonal rotation of festival scavenger hunts. Remy's Ratatouille Hide & Squeak is très magnifique! Guests can search throughout World Showcase for hidden statuettes of Remy and place stickers on a map. Finishers receive an EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival keepsake! There's no better way to explore Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park than with the Wilderness Explorers. Self-guided activities range from animal observation to learning essential wilderness skills. If you plan to get a MagicBand+ for your upcoming trip, your padawans may enjoy experiencing the interactive Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters game in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. 

    I hope your trip is an award winner, Jaclyn!
