This year, fans missing the “Back to the Future” ride at Universal Orlando should get their watches synchronized for June 14 – 17, 2012 when the DeLorean Car Show and Convention 2012 heads to Walt Disney World. Taking place at the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista just across from Downtown Disney, the show will not only feature “Back to the Future” special guests and exhibits, but also plenty of other fun for DeLorean enthusiasts.
Among the special guests at the event will be “Back to the Future” trilogy creator, writer, and producer Bob Gale, appearing at the BTTF.com booth for photos and autographs. The popular web site will also be showcasing toys, games, and other “Back to the Future” items.
A DeLorean Time Machine from “Back to the Future III” will be making its DeLorean Car Show debut in Orlando, available for an up-close viewing. It’s the only privately-owned, screen-used vehicle of its kind and was recently displayed at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con.
In addition to these “Back to the Future” sights, the event schedule includes special presentations surrounding DeLorean cars, Hot Wheels, and even an appearance by Kathryn DeLorean, daughter of DeLorean founder John DeLorean.
Registration is open at DeloreanCarShow.com for the 2012 DeLorean Car Show, with the $25 cost including a metallic DCS 2012 DeLorean lapel pin. Special hotel and Disney ticket rates are available for attendees. Registration closes on June 10th.
