I want a photo with Doc Brown!Universal Orlando: I want to get my picture taken with Doc Brown at Universal Orlando, any tips?
From Erin MaioI'm going to Universal Studios Orlando in March. Out of all of the times I've gone, the one thing I've never been able to do there is get my picture taken with Doc Brown! So far all that I've heard is that he's usually out everyday between 10-11AM and usually in front of the DeLorean. Any tips?

From Joseph CatlettMy wife and I saw Doc Brown last October in front of the DELOREAN and THE TIME TRAVELING TRAIN. It was late morning and we got our photo taken. The Doc they have is great, does not break character and asked me if I've seen all 4 movies. I looked at him weird, and he pardoned himself and explained that of course I haven't, as it hasn't come out yet in this particular year. Fun.

From Jake JohnsonI have not been to universal in several years (2008) but i understand the "Back To The Future" ride is now the Simpson ride..

Is the car still there out front now I am not sure. Guess someone will come along and correct the info.
That was a great ride. Too bad it had to be scrapped/changed just before the 25yr anniv.
From Jeff ElliottI was just there in October and the train and delorian have been moved to a small display area in the general vicinity of Shrek. When we were there, we saw Doc wandering around.

Not that I have tried this, but I would think that guest services would be able to let you know what Doc's schedule is.
From Tony DudaThe DeLorean and the train engine are placed at the other end of the little street where the Blues Brothers have their show. Doc Brown shows up at different times but you need to ask at guest relations when that is. Those times never seem to be in the program map found at the gate. Last time I was there, Doc Brown was just riding away on his weird bicycle when I got there.

From Kelly MuggletonI saw Doc riding his bike in the park too - it was quite early in the day near the Animal Actors stage.

I yelled after him that they should never have closed his ride - he completely agreed!
From Manny BarronBack to the Future was the greatest ride of all-time. I will forever miss it. As for Doc Brown, your best bet is in the early hours of the day. I've always seen him with his bike or by the BTTF vehicles(by the shrek area) in the morning and early afternoon.

From Steve WardI managed to catch Doc when he was cycling past the "Hollywood Photo Op" (the bit where you stand on the marker and it looks like your in hollywood)

He was really cool. We did the classic pose
From Joshua CounsilTruly the best character actor at Universal Studios. We crossed by him as happenstance. He was by the DeLorean in the afternoon.
