Plot

Doc Brown travels with Clara, Verne, Jules, and Einstein from September 9, 1893 to 2038. They arrive at a theme park that is modeled after 19th century ideas about the future.

The park is at the Lone Pine Adventure Center, which is run by Marcus Irving's MAI Tech company. Jules and Verne mistake one of the robots displaying a hologram of an X-ray for a robber, and try to apprehend it. They end up causing the robot, and several others, to malfunction.

Doc decides that the boys need an even more secure environment. However, Clara suggests that they run their errand before deciding on a destination. They then travel to October 1985 to reunite with Marty and Jennifer.

On October 27, 1985, Marty and Jennifer are at the site of the destroyed DeLorean time machine. Doc, Clara and their sons arrive at Marty’s crash site in their time locomotive to briefly check up on Marty and Jennifer. Jennifer and Marty show Doc the blank fax, and he dispenses some sound advice about its significance. The Brown family then travels to 1939.

While he's traveling to their destination, Doc thinks about how he doesn't want to time travel anymore, but he knows his family does. So he continues to their destination.

They arrive at New York World's Fair on September 21, 1939. Meanwhile, German spies, Fritz and Karl, wondering if he might have shaved his mustache, mistake Doc Brown for Albert Einstein.
