Aw! We're glad Tracy Morgan is feeling well enough to pay a visit to the happiest place on earth!

On Thursday, Tracy hit up the famed theme park with his fiancee Megan Wollover and their precious daughter, Maven. The family was at the park to celebrate Maven's second birthday.

Hmm, sounds like Morgan took a cue from Kim Kardashian West! The families should have coordinated a joint birthday party for the tyke and North West!

While the actor's outing might not seem like a big deal, it actually IS considering the 30 Rock star was in a terrible and near fatal car crash in June of last year. Not only did TM suffer debilitating injuries, but he also lost his dear friend in the wreck. Most recently Tracy was awarded a big settlement from Walmart(the driver of the offending vehicle worked for the conglomerate) as compensation for his suffering.

We're just glad the 46-year-old was able to celebrate his little girl's special day! Best of luck, Trace!

The Saturday Night Live alum chatted with Matt Lauer on NBC Nightly News and explained that he's aiming to fully recover before he performs in front of audiences — especially trying to improve his memory and balance.

Though performing seems like the biggest motivator for the 46-year-old's rehabilitation, he admits that he's not sure he'll be "funny" again, saying:

"I love comedy. I wonder how I'm going to be funny again. How I'm going to get to remembering my identity. What do I do? The fans let me know we can't wait for you to come back. They can't wait for me to come back. I can't wait to make them laugh again."

We're so happy the comedian is on the road to recovery, and we can't wait to see him return to the stage!

Check out the emotional interview (below) to hear Morgan talk about the moment he found out his friend Jimmy Mack died from the accident.

He is still on the road to recovery.

Almost exactly a year after a speeding Walmart truck hit his limo and left him critically injured, Tracy Morgan gave his first interview on NBC's Today Show live on Monday.

Sitting down with Matt Lauer and his attorney Benedict Morelli, the comedian looked like he did before the accident last June. Morgan explained his health has improved, but he still has occasional "bad days" where he gets headaches and nosebleeds.

Though he has made a visible physical recovery, his emotional battle has proven difficult — his friend and fellow comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair was killed in the accident.

The 30 Rock alum got choked up when speaking about Jimmy Mack, explaining

On Monday June 1st, the actor and his lawyer Benedict Morelli will appear on the Today show for a live interview with Matt Lauer at Rockefeller Plaza.

The 46-year-old has been out of the public eye since the accident, as he was recovering from severe head trauma, a broken leg, and broken ribs after a Walmart truck slammed into the back of a limo van carrying the comedian and two others.

Morgan released this statement on Wednesday about the settlement:

————————-

Last year, Tracy Morgan was involved in a horrible car accident with a Walmart truck, which left the comedian seriously injured and killed fellow comedian James McNair.

On Wednesday, the superstore announced that it had settled a lawsuit with Morgan's representatives.

The actual terms of the settlement are confidential, but according to Walmart CEO Greg Foran, the settlement that ended the litigation was "amicable."

Foran had this to say in a statement from the company:

Keep making progress, Tracy Morgan! You can do it!

On Monday, the comedian was spotted at the Bergen Town Center Outlets in New Jersey shopping with his fiancée Megan Wollover and their daughter.

The 46-year-old was seen walking with the assistance of a cane, which is no different from his last public appearance in February, where he used the helper while entering a rehab facility.

Ever since his car accident last June — where a Walmart truck driver hit his limo, killing friend James McNair and leaving him with brain and limb injuries — the 30 Rock star has been slowly but surely making improvements with his recovery.

As we reported last month, the conglomerate paid $10 million dollars to McNair's children, Jamel and Danita.

Morgan has sued the company for "careless and negligent ownership and operation of its motor vehicle." In response, the retail corporation countersued claiming he wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

Even with his condition, the funnyman is determined to get back into comedy.

We can't wait for the day when Tracy will make us laugh again.
