The world’s first African-American quintuplets are marking their 30th birthdays at their favorite place on the planet — Walt Disney World Resort – this week. Indiana’s Gaither quints are returning to parks they have paid visits to in prior special occasions, this time bringing their families with them for a gala Magic Kingdom celebration. The quints are unique in the world; they were born without the use of fertility drugs.
The Gaither quints celebrated with a fire truck ride down Main Street, U.S.A., met up with Disney’s “Fab 5” (Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Pluto and Donald Duck) in front of Cinderella Castle, as well as two New Fantasyland stops: riding Dumbo, the Flying Elephant and interacting with Gaston outside Gaston’s Tavern.
