Witherspoon, 35, and husband Jim Toth, 41, rode the Splash Mountain ride on Saturday in Anaheim, California, along with her kids, Ava, 12, and Deacon, 8.

The gang also hopped on other rides in the park, including the Matterhorn ride and the teacups, flanked by other pals including Toth's brother John, UsWeekly reports.

Witherspoon and Toth, a CAA agent, wed in March of 2010. Witherspoon, who divorced Ava and Deacon's father Ryan Phillipe in 2007 and dated actor Jake Gyllenhaal for over two years afterward, said getting remarried lifted a huge burden off her shoulders.
