The Plaza Hotel used to offer "The Home Alone Experience" around Christmas where guests could pay to stay in a room similar to the room Kevin stayed in, receive Home Alone gifts including the movies, and take a limo and see some of the filming locations including the toy store upon which Duncan's Toy Chest was based. The Plaza has since shut down and become apartment buildings. See more »
At the airport, Kevin has his father's bag as he boards the plane for NYC. Then it is by his own bag showing up at the baggage claim, in Florida, that Kevin's family realizes he's not with them. So he wouldn't have had the inflatable clown with him to use in the Plaza as a ruse in the shower. It wasn't in his father's carry-on bag, so it would've been in Kevin's bag that went to Florida.

Just as the end credits finish, the Hughes logo is moving and making crashing sounds. This is possibly a reference to the film logo moving as seen in the TV spots and theatrical trailer See more »
When aired on TV, the scene where Kevin visits the World Trade Center is cut due to the September 11th attacks. See more »
The first Home Alone is very good indeed. The last two are just wannabes and feel like they don't belong. Home Alone 2 is my personal favourite, and I watch it about once a month. The only problem is that the jokes are basically retreads of the first movie, but believe me, they're miles better than the ones in the fourth ( which is one of the worst movies ever) This is still a very solid film, that gets slow in the second half. The performances are excellent. Macaulay Culkin brought a lot of charm to almost all the movies he's been in. Just a shame, he isn't acting any more. Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern are hilarious, as always. Catherine O'Hara and John heard are amiable as the parents, while the wonderful Tim Curry gives a hilarious performance as the Concierge. My favourite scenes were the bathroom scene in the hotel, and when the staff are held hostage by a television. Just priceless. Eddie Bracken and Brenda Fricker also make appearances, and their scenes are touching, as they are of friendship and acceptance. I absolutely adored the soundtrack too, New York looks splendid and the Plaza Hotel was incredible to look at. Brilliant movie! 9/10. Bethany Cox
