Now you can Stay Home Alone with friends at The McCallisters! Promoting the upcoming film franchise’s newest holiday adventure, Home Sweet Home Alone, Disney+ and Airbnb is offering a night’s stay for four guests in the Winnetka, Illinois home featured in the Christmas Classic Home Alone.
Stay Home Alone at The McCallisters
A Home Sweet Home Alone Holiday not only includes the experience of staying in the stately home guaranteed to bring up nostalgic feelings, but it’s loaded with “booby traps” that you get to set, bringing out the 8-year old Kevin McCallister in you.
Hosted by big brother Buzz, the childhood home on the picturesque street in the suburbs of Chicago is decorated as it was in the movie including some of the most memorable experiences featured in the film.
Fans can splash themselves with Brut aftershave in dad’s robe and enjoy a candlelit dinner of microwavable Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, just like Kevin did.
These special overnight stays from the folks at Airbnb (i.e. Winnie The Pooh’s Home, Carrie Bradshaw’s Brooklyn Apt from Sex and The City and The House of Gucci Villa) are not contests, but opportunities. While you still have to pony up the dough for the travel and overnight accommodations, these offer unique ways to combine a trip with an experience like no other.
About the space (written in the first person on the website by brother Buzz):
Many Christmases ago, the McCallisters went to Paris – well, most of us.
Though we’re older and wiser now (I’ve even got my own security firm), we’re never too old for holiday hijinks. So while we’re away on vacation (all of us, this time), I’m inviting one crew of mischief makers to let their inner eight-year-olds run free in my childhood home on Dec. 12. Booking for this one-night stay opens Dec. 7 at 1 p.m. Central Time via the Airbnb site.
It’s a holiday wish come true: a cozy holiday scene with twinkling lights and a perfectly trimmed tree awaits you at the McCallister “castle” (oh, and so does my pet tarantula – mind watching him for me?), now bookable for the very first time.
This holiday season, we’re playing by my little bro’s rules, so feel free to eat junk food, watch rubbish on TV, borrow my dad’s aftershave and choose your own adventure with a legendary battle plan as a guide. Just stay out of my room, okay?
After you’ve worked up an appetite, you can feast on all the comfort food your hearts desire, including plenty of Chicago’s finest pizza and a candlelit dinner of microwavable Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.
Then, when you’re ready to wind down, you can enjoy a viewing of the film franchise’s newest holiday adventure, Home Sweet Home Alone, on Disney+.
‘Tis the season of giving, so in honor of the first-ever stay at the McCallister home, Airbnb will make a one-time donation to Chicago’s La Rabida Children’s Hospital, which is dedicated to maintaining and improving the quality of life for each of its patients with complex conditions, disabilities, and chronic illness.
Other things to note
A member of my McCallister Security team will ensure a comfortable stay for you and your family, including showing you around, arranging meals and gifting you with a LEGO Ideas Home Alone set to take and build at home.
Those looking to book should note that this stay’s rules require strict adherence with local COVID-19 guidelines. Guests are responsible for their own travel to and from Chicago.
