Where do you go after recovering from a heart attack?

The happiest place on earth!

Kevin Smith hit up Disneyland on Monday to enjoy a day of family fun at the Californian theme park.

“You just survived a heart attack! What do you wanna do next? ‘I’m going to @disneyland!’” the 47-year-old filmmaker captioned a photo with his wife, Jennifer, and daughter, Harley Quinn, on Instagram. “Yesterday we took a family trip together for the first time in years to the happiest place on Earth, to celebrate my still being alive (and to do research)!”

“We spent 7 hours going on every ride in the park except Splash Mountain and Dumbo (both closed for repairs), the Tea Cups, and the Indiana Jones adventure,” he continued. “When we first moved to California in 2002, Jen and I would bring a young @harleyquinnsmith to @disney at least once a month. So yesterday’s trip to the #magickingdom was not only good for the heart, it was good for the soul!”

Harley Quinn, 18, also posted a photo from the fun day out.

“Trying to force my family to love Disney as much as I do ~ an ongoing saga,” she wrote alongside the selfie, in which she can be seen wearing a sweater featuring Disney characters.

Smith suffered a near-fatal heart attack in February, with doctors telling him he had a 100% blockage of his LAD artery.

He has since lost 20 pounds thanks to efforts to live a healthier lifestyle, and recently credited Penn Jillette's 2017 book Presto! for helping with the loss.
