As Today reported, you can now stay at the Chicago-area house at the center of the 1990 slapstick comedy classic, “Home Alone.”

It will be available via Airbnb to book for one night only, as part of a promotion to celebrate the new Disney+ movie "Home Sweet Home Alone.” And it’s just $25, plus taxes and fees.

Buzz McCallister (Devin Ratray), the older brother to left-behind Kevin McCallister (Culkin), is hosting the overnight stay, which opens for booking on December 7 at 2 p.m. ET, for a stay on December 12.

Ratray -- who appeared in the first two “Home Alone” films and makes an appearance in “Home Sweet Home Alone" -- is not actually staying at the house overnight, but photos of Buzz and other "Home Alone" actors will hang on the walls.

"You may not remember me as particularly accommodating,” Buzz says in the news release, "but I've grown up, and I'd be happy to share my family home -- my pizza, even -- with you this holiday season. Just try not to let my tarantula, Axl, loose this time."

That might just happen if you’re not careful, because the burglar-magnet mansion will be stuffed like a Christmas stocking with super-fun extras that reference the film -- like a meet-and-greet with a real tarantula!

There will also be a trimmed Christmas tree, 1990s junk food, including Chicago pizza, a "candlelit dinner" of microwave Kraft mac and cheese, and, yup, booby traps that you can set yourself!

There will also be a screening of “Home Sweet Home Alone,” and a Lego Ideas "Home Alone" kit to take with you so you can build your own mini McCallister house when you get home. Hopefully not alone.

The timing for this is spot-on, not just because of the Christmas setting of the original film, but the Christmas-like meaning attached -- Airbnb is donating to Chicago's La Rabida Children's Hospital in honor of the first-ever stay at the fictional McCallister family home.

While in the movie one would mainly have to worry about bumbling home invaders, Airbnb realizes we’ve got our own real invaders to worry about -- hence COVID-19 guidelines will be in effect. On-site staff will be following local, state, and federal guidelines, as well as Airbnb's safety practices, which include wearing a mask and practicing social distancing.

Guests will be responsible for their own travel to and from Chicago. Airbnb will offer guests a $1,000 travel credit if cancellation becomes necessary due to infection rates shifting or quarantining changes.

Hopefully this time they won’t leave Kevin there, though it would definitely be an adventure hanging out with him.

And hey, if you don't win this one, you can always go visit the " A Christmas Story" house in Cleveland.
