Richard McGuire was arrested for trespassing after he spent days camped on Discovery Island, a closed Disney World attraction. McGuire told authorities that life on the island was like paradise.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. A Florida man who hoped to ride out quarantine in one of the happiest places on Earth was not quite successful. Richard McGuire was arrested for trespassing after he spent several days camped on Discovery Island, a shuttered Disney World attraction. McGuire told authorities that life on the island was like paradise - so much so that he missed multiple no trespassing signs and also slept through an extensive search for his whereabouts.
