Take My Money: 🍨🍕🍭🏨👦🏼 🍨🍕🍭🏨👦🏼 10/10
There’s no denying it and there’s no point discussing it: Home Alone and Home Alone 2 are the best Christmas movies of all time.
And even though Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister is extremely lovable in both, Home Alone 2 may just be a liiiittle bit better than the first one, because it plays in New York. And because Kevin has one hell of a time at the famed Plaza hotel (ice cream in bed and pizza in a limo, anyone?).
And now you can too.
The Plaza is offering a truly amazing experience to celebrate the 25th anniversary (25th! Anniversary!) of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York. Aiming to give guests the chance to “live like Kevin” (don’t lie, we all dreamed of it a little), the iconic hotel has designed a range of services catered to bringing you the ultimate Christmas/Kevin McCallister experience. Minus the burglars and electrocution and stuff.
The website reads, “in-room and throughout the hotel, a variety of experiences inspired by Kevin’s time over the holidays here at The Plaza will come to life for guests to enjoy.” The package includes an interactive photo booth experience, a limited edition paint can (see what they did there!) with all 5 Home Alone DVDs, a Home Alone 2 anniversary backpack, and an “over-the-top ice cream sundae in-room, just like Kevin had!”
I mean, is this #goals or what?

But wait, there’s more. The package description continues, “beyond the in-room experience, guests are invited to dine in the Todd English Food Hall to taste-test a ‘90s-inspired menu with upscale versions of childhood favourites.” This includes anything from ‘Luxe-ables’ burrata prosciutto, grilled baguette, and chocolate truffles, over to a special ‘Plaza Punch’, a swanky boozy version of a Capri Sun.
For those looking to take the Home Alone 2 experience beyond the hotel, The Plaza will also be offering express passes to the top of the Empire State Building, access to Wollman ice skating rink, a 4-hour limousine tour through NYC (inclusive of special Home Alone Map), and a personalised vacation photographer to capture it all.
Put a fork in us, we. are. done.
Whilst you won’t have to lose your family and steal your dad’s credit card for this one, find out more about the special experience over on The Plaza Hotel website, and make all your dreams come true. The package deal will be on from 1st December 2017 to 29th October 2018, and rates start at $895.
