Nixon and Disneyland, Part 5

Disneyland Line, October 9, 1970:
DR. HENRY KISSINGER, one of President Nixon's chief advisors, recently visited Disneyland. A CBS-TV camera crew accompanied Kissinger during his visit, and the film they shot will be shown on CBS' "60 Minutes," October 13, channel 2 at 10 p.m.

I once heard a story that Kissinger, wearing a borrowed security jacket while visiting Disneyland, was mistaken for an employee and asked, by a guest, for directions. He so enjoyed this casual interaction with the public that after that he sometimes manned a popcorn cart.

I know this sounds ridiculous - but has anyone else ever heard if this was true?
