A man was recently arrested after being spotted trespassing on Disney World property.
The parks at Walt Disney World are closed “until further notice.” So, when a man was spotted on Disney property, security quickly took action.
Click Orlando reported that Orange County deputies were called to Disney World when security found a man camping on property, which is currently closed to the public.
Disney security spotted Richard McGuire, 42, camping on Discovery Island, Disney’s now-closed zoological attraction located on Bay Lake. The Orange County deputies that responded to the call searched for the man by helicopter, boat, and on foot before apprehending him.
McGuire told the deputies that he didn’t hear them addressing him on loud speaker because he was sleeping inside a building on the island which he referred to as a “tropical paradise.” He said he had been camping there for several days and planned to stay for about a week. According to McGuire, he wasn’t aware that the property was off-limits.
McGuire was charged with trespassing on posted property and was banned from returning to any Walt Disney World properties.
