What could be better medicine than sunshine, family fun and a day out with Mickey and Minnie?

Michael Douglas – who's recovering from treatment for throat cancer – looked joyful as he posed with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and kids Carys, 7½, and Dylan, 10, on a family trip to Epcot Center in Florida Wednesday.

Douglas and Zeta-Jones "are very happy and thankful the way things are going this Thanksgiving," says Douglas's rep, Allen Burry.

The family visited all four Walt Disney World parks during their multi-day trip. "Michael looked healthy and happy to be spending time with his family," an observer tells PEOPLE.

Douglas, 66, completed eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy in October. In recent weeks, the Oscar winner has been recuperating with his family at home in New York City, walking his kids to school and working to gain back the strength he lost due to the treatments.

Douglas's father, actor Kirk, recently told Entertainment Tonight that Michael is feeling "very good" and "much stronger now."

As Zeta-Jones, 41, told PEOPLE in August, "if there's anything Michael has, it's strength."
