The 32-year-old heiress sweetly carried her 18-month-old daughter Minnie on her hip as the family excitedly ran around the theme park. 

Meanwhile, her other three children, Lavinia, eight, and twin boys James Robert Fredrick Jr and Andrew Kulbir, both six, followed dutifully behind.

Petra cut a casual figure in a pair of forest green leggings and a cropped grey T-shirt as she kept an eye on her kids as they traipsed around Disneyland. 

She completed the laidback look with an enviable black Prada crossbody bag, white tube socks and a pair of multicoloured trainers. 

The heiress and her beau looked to be having a blast on the Matterhorn ride as they flew around corners while clutching the safety bar in front of them. 

They also spent time in the Star Wars Galaxy section of the theme park and tried out the new Rise Of The Resistance ride.

Petra welcomed her youngest child with Sam in April last year, while she shares Lavinia, James, and Andrew with her ex-husband James Stunt. 

Petra and James’ divorce was finalised in October 2017, after six years of marriage. While no details of the settlement were released, it was reported that James signed a £16million prenuptial agreement, with Petra also awarded sole custody of the couple’s three children.  

The stateside visit comes after Petra and Sam recently put their £170 million home in the UK up for sale.

In a recent clip, produced by Architectural Digest, Petra and Sam introduce people to their Grade II listed home, which has been transformed into a modern palace plush with gold and crystal detail. 

As cameras are let into the home for the first time, Bernie Ecclestone’s youngest daughter, who’s family is worth an estimated £2billion, says: ‘This project took me five years to complete and is a home that I absolutely adore.’

It’s an unusual step for fiercely private Petra – who admitted the home will be ‘hard to sell’ and has  previously spoke about how she relocated her family to Los Angeles as she no longer felt safe at her luxury London home.

Walking into the home, Petra explains: ‘We custom built this gold bar, obviously it’s to entertain and to have lots of parties that we do not have. 

‘I love this chandelier, it’s a custom chandelier with 150,000 pieces of crystals, going from bronze finishes to gold which is obviously my favourite colour. 

‘This couch is obviously one of my favourite pieces of the house, and the panther is my favourite animal which shows inspiration throughout the whole house. 

‘This is one of my favourite rooms of the whole house,’ Sam adds.

‘So the first thing that hits you when you enter this room is this magnificent crystal chandelier which is 150,000 Swarovski crystals. 

‘Behind us you will see we have a fabulous bar which is all custom built, And obviously, the panther, which features throughout the house is seen in here as well. There’s custom cabinetry throughout the whole room which gives a very 1920s Gatsby feel to this whole sort of vibe’.

Opposite is an island with a teppanyaki grill of the kind normally seen in top restaurants. Petra helpfully explains that it is where ‘your chef can cook’, but goes on to say that there’s also a second island for her to cook on – not, she admits, that she does so very often.

‘We used it a lot through lock down. We had fancy dinners in here as a family, it’s darker tones in this room but softened by the natural light and of us that the garden. 

‘Obviously the first time you walk in this room, the chandelier is the main showstoppers. And there’s lots of elements of Petra, in this room, coming from the sparkles in the rug, which then elements of the table.

‘One of my favourite parts of this room as a design feature is actually how well we’ve hidden the radiators, which is with this custom cabinetry that sits around the walls.’

The couple also explained their ‘main family kitchen’ is where they eat ‘most of their meals’ which their children love because they get to look at an ‘amazing fish tank’.

‘There’s a resin with iridescent effect of sparkles and then on the doors we have nude coloured lacquer, which features throughout the lower ground levels of the house.

The couple also shared their ‘proper English garden’ is ‘so quiet and so peaceful’ that you’ don’t actually feel like you’re in central London’ and that they learned to play football in the garden to entertain their children. 

‘Their columns and the archers were built with the original house so it gives it a real historic feel to it,’ Petra went on.

‘I personally love historic homes and obviously I love to collect them and this garden just made it feel truly special and just such a historical magical place’.
