Riding in the very first sled down Disneyland's Matterhorn in June 1959, were Walt Disney, his wife Lilly, their daughters ... and U.S. Vice President Richard Nixon.
When Vice President Nixon and Walt were waiting for the official first ride on the Disneyland Monorail, an empty train came by.
In his excitement, Walt couldn't wait. He grabbed Nixon and jumped on board, leaving Nixon's Secret Service agents standing, stunned, on the platform!
