In April, Richard J. McGuire was found camping out on Discovery Island by Walt Disney World security. Orange County deputies then arrested him and he was formally charged with trespassing in July.
McGuire is #6 on BuzzFeed’s list of 50. The list also includes a group of men playing Uno in the middle of traffic, the Grim Reaper visiting Florida beaches during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, and a woman attempting to sell a manatee-shaped chicken tender.
Discovery Island first opened in 1974, but closed permanently in 1999. McGuire called the island a “tropical paradise” and claimed to be unaware that the property was closed. He has since been banned from Walt Disney World Resort.
