Loving Son Takes His Mom to the Happiest Place on Earth — for the Most Heartwarming Reason!

Posted on

They’re off to the next stop – and this time it’s Carla’s favorite place on earth! Barton Brooks decided to treat his heartbroken mother, Carla, to a European getaway adventure after her husband, Karl, died last year.

Barton and his partner, Gregg, planned a surprise trip to take Carla on 20 outings in Europe’s biggest cities. The group landed in Disneyland Paris this week and with suggestions from PEOPLE readers, they posed with Frozen characters, rode rollercoasters and hugged Minnie Mouse. “Disneyland has always been her favorite place!” Barton tells PEOPLE.

Carla, Barton and Gregg are headed to Switzerland next, and they’d love some guidance on local musts! Leave suggestions for them in the comments section below. We’ll post a new episode of “Carla’s Comeback” every Wednesday, so be sure to follow all 20 of their adventures here!
