McGuire took the opportunity to camp on Discovery Island when Walt Disney World was closed for a month. Once he was caught, he told authorities that it was a “tropical paradise”.

We speak of Discovery Island to be a “tropical paradise”, but we can refer to what Discovery Island calls it. Discovery Island is in the middle of Bay Lake at the Walt Disney World Resort. The island is accessible only by boat. It was once called “Treasure Island” and was themed for the guest to pirate before taking on a new personality as the animals of Discovery Island. Discovery Island closed on 8 April 1998 and has since been abandoned. As you can see in the video, it is very high and buildings are standing but not laid.
