Dr. Doom and Green Goblin tend to alternate with the Heros in Marvel Island. Their times are not listed in the park maps, but I see them out regularly.

I tried to meet ParaNorman on Wednesday and was told he is only out Thur-Sat in the late afternoons (which are when I work). It was a bummer - hopefully he'll be out more frequently as it gets closer to the movie!

I can confirm that Dr. Doom was out Wednesday.

Looking at the pictures is it just me or does Betty Boop look really wrong as a real person?




It would be so much better if she was in a full body suit like Jafar or Smee at Disney.

We have never been to UO before. I love your website and pics, but is there a list anywhere that shows WHERE in UO/IoA these characters usually can be found? Specifically the Simpsons, Sponge Bob, Despicable Me, Hop, Scooby Doo, and Marvel Superheroes?

We are debating whether to do the new Superstar breakfast one morning. Has anyone here been? What did you think? My triplets are 12 and love getting pics made with the characters.

Thanks!

The super heroes stay in Marvel Super Hero Island. They come out throughout the day. Check the park map when you're there for times.

The other characters you mentioned can usually be found around the front areas of the Studios. Mostly near E.T. but they do tend to wander around. Photo ops are not difficult to get and the characters enjoy meeting their fans.

It tells you where above the image:
Universal Studios, Hollywood (November 2011)
Park, Location (Date Photo was taken)

Outside of Toon Lagoon, most areas are small enough that you can just stand in the middle of it and see the characters. The areas are specified on the maps.

Unlike Disney, which has specific meeting areas off to the side in the shade with organized queues, Universal's characters are out in the middle of everything.

The only 2 characters that have "organized spaces" are Spiderman and Spongebob.

Is there a list of which characters actually sign? Also, are there ever Madagascar characters around?

Thanks!

I knew most of the Actors/Actresses have several roles, (ie, in Beetlejuice, weve seen the characters move around from 1 show to the next.Weve seen Frankie and Wolfman swap, as well as Hip and Hop, and Bride any number of occasions.) and that some even work at multiple parks. I never would have made that connection.

Any word if he is out more often now? I gotta think those characters are an obvious one to have out during the Halloween season, right?

Thanks!

Went to IOA/US on 10/21 & 10/22 and met many characters and got their autographs. We saw Hogwarts Express Conductor, Cyclops, Wolverine, Rogue, Storm, Captain America, Spiderman, Dr. Doom, Popeye, Olive Oyl, and Betty Boop at IOA (didn't make it to Suess until after the characters left for the day). At US we met Curious George, Woodie and Winnie Woodpecker, Scooby, Shaggy, The Simpsons (Bart, Homer, Marge and Lisa), Shrek and Fiona, Lucille Ball, Marilyn Monroe, Men in Black Agents, Dora, Diego, Boots, EB, Pink Berets, Phil, Carlos, Spongebob, Squidward and Patrick. Despicable Me characters were there as well but we didn't do a meet and greet though DD danced with a couple of Minions.

Christmas Characters

Does anyone know if any of the characters will be out in Holiday outfits this year. I know last year they had some out at KidZone after the Star Toons show, but was unsure if anything like this would be happening again:







Has anyone seen any characters (besides those at Seuss Landing for Grinchmas) decked out for the Holiday season yet?

Im probably going 1 day this week, and if no one else gets there first, Ill look. The last time we were there on the 2nd I hadnt noticed any of the characters with Christmas clothes, but I wasnt really paying attention either.
