FLORIDA, FL- Richard McGuire, 42, faces trespassing charges after security found him camping on Walt Disney World’s Discovery Island

Florida deputies arrested a man who had been living out his quarantine on a shuttered Disney World island, telling authorities it felt like a ‘tropical paradise.’

Orange County Sheriff’s deputies found Richard McGuire on Disney’s Discovery Island on Thursday. He said he’d been there since Monday or Tuesday and had planned to camp there for a week, according to an arrest report.

The 42-year-old said he didn’t hear numerous deputies searching the private island for him on foot, by boat and by air because he was asleep in a building. He told the deputy he didn’t know it was a restricted area, despite there being numerous ‘no trespassing’ signs.
Police ended up using a loud speaker to speak to him. McGuire was ordered not to return to any additional Disney World properties
McGuire was arrested on a trespassing charge and taken to jail without incident.
