Trivia: Right before the camera shows Kevin walk up to Mr. Duncan to pay for his things, it shows a man and his baby. The man is really Chris Columbus (the director of the movie) with his daughter (Eleanor Columbus) who later played Susan Bones in the first two Harry Potter movies.

Trivia: The studio spent a fortune on fake snow to use in Central Park, only for a real blizzard to descend during filming.

Trivia: All the children from the toy store were allowed to keep a toy as part of their pay.

Trivia: Chris Columbus recalls during filming, "I was up on 140th Street in Harlem. It was three in the morning, and I was walking to get a cup of coffee. These two young kids come up to me and they said, "What's the name of the movie?" I said "Home Alone 2" and they said, "What do you do?" and I said "I'm the director", they said, "Oh, you're John Hughes."

Continuity mistake: In the first film, it is mentioned several times that Kevin is 8 years old. However, in this film it is stated that he is 10. When his parents are in the Miami airport security office, they say that he was left alone last Christmas. That would make him 9. Both films take place the same days, from about three days before Christmas until Christmas morning, so even if Kevin is born around Christmas time this is still a mistake.

Kevin McCallister: Howdy do. This is Peter McCallister, the father. I'd like a hotel room please, with an extra large bed, a TV, and one of those little refrigerators you have to open with a key. Credit card? You got it.

Question: After Peter yells at Kevin "You spent $967 on room service?!", where does Kevin run off to? It's not clear from what's onscreen.

Answer: He's heading back to the hotel most likely to apologize for spending such a huge amount.

Answer: It's Kevin's dad who screams out. You can tell because Buzz looks at the bill, smirks, and says, "Oh, Dad." I've always interpreted it as Kevin running away. The joke is that Kevin's dad screams so loud from the hotel room that Kevin can hear him from the park. So Kevin wouldn't want to face his dad.

I just watched the clip on YouTube and yeah you're right, it is his dad. The sound of his voice when he yells "Kevin" sounds exactly like Buzz, so it probably conditioned a lot of viewers such as myself to accept it as Buzz's voice for the whole line.
