Gaither Quintuplets Celebrate their 30th Birthdays at the Magic Kingdom

THE GAITHER FAMILY, FIRST SURVIVING SET OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN QUINTUPLETS, CELEBRATE 30TH BIRTHDAY AT DISNEY WORLD IN FLORIDA

They say Walt Disney World is the place for celebrations. I think it’s true and so do a very famous set of quintuplets. The five Gaither siblings were the world’s first African-American born in the U.S. to survive. They’re now celebrating their 30th birthdays at, where else, the happiest place on earth – the Magic Kingdom.

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.

Indiana’s Gaither quints are returning to parks they have paid visits to in prior special occasions, although it’s been 20 years since they visited together, 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.
