Adorable moment mom finds surprise trip to Disneyland hidden in crossword puzzle


A woman received a heartwarming surprise from her children on her birthday.

Tracy Mattos from California in the US was celebrating her birthday with her family when Rodney (29), Greg (26) and Caitlyn (23) sprung the sweetest surprise on her.

The gift, which the trio encrypted in a crossword puzzle, was a trip to California’s Disneyland – where their mother used to take them as children.

“Growing up, my mom and dad used to surprise us with Disneyland trips here and there,” Rodney recalled.

“The magic of Disneyland is real and it’s been a personal goal of mine to work hard and provide a trip for my mom,” he added.

As it dawned on Tracy that her children was sponsoring her a trip to one of their favourite childhood theme parks, the 59-year-old started to tear up.

“Tomorrow You Fly to the Happiest Place on Earth,” the crossword read.

“Seeing the pure joy on her face as she filled out the last couple answers made it all worth it,” Rodney said.
