Tracy Morgan and his family kicked off their July 4 holiday weekend with a visit to Disney World in Florida on Thursday.

The former 30 Rock star was accompanied by his fiancée Megan Wollover and daughter Maven as they hit the rides at the Magic Kingdom to celebrate the little girl’s second birthday.

Morgan, 46, has come a long way in the year since a fatal bus crash left him in critical condition and fighting for his life.

The funnyman had to re-learn how to walk, sit and stand, and continues to work with therapists as he deals with the lingering effects of traumatic brain injuries.

“I am happy to be alive,” Morgan told PEOPLE last month. “I have my good days and I have my bad days … I just want to get better and become healthy.”

Morgan said that he’s looking forward to walking his fiancée down the aisle, and is “determined to play with my little daughter and chase her around.”

“All of those things [are] what keeps me going.”
