MPLS with 2 ISPs

We have a customer currently running MPLS across all remote sites approx 40+ sites and growing. Customer is building a DR Site across a different geographic location to provide full failover to remote sites in case of an outage back at CORE. This DR site will also have an internet connection to a different ISP Provider than what is currently used at their CORE Site. We are looking for a solution to automatically route Internet Traffic to DR site in case of an outage at CORE site. Since customer is running MPLS there is no way to inject a failover default route to remote sites since the next hop is AT&T's Routers. Can you please provide some documentation or PDF we can reference to fully accomplish this task. Customer does not want to use BGP or have their own AS # as of right now. Is there another way we can accomplish true failover between CORE and DR sites in case of Internet Connectivity outage at CORE through an MPLS network,

This is using BGP. I am looking for a solution not involving BGP. This is 2 Sites in 2 different Geographic areas.

Customer is running full MPLS end-to-end, no CE-PE handoff?
