Gotta get ds to meet up with convention this Friday 9 am at Universal and he can't be late. Given holiday and rush hour, what's a realistic time to get on the road? (hopefully not the middle of the night ;P )
Friday should be lighter traffic than normal, but he should leave Anaheim a bit before 7 to be at Universal by 9 am. A typical rush hour drive to downtown is 80-90 minutes from Anaheim, and Universal is a good 20-30 minutes farther in morning traffic. If he's lucky, he gets there in an hour and has time to park and relax before the convention.

Too bad I didn't see this. I would recommend the Metrolink from Anaheim to Union Station, followed by the Red Line Subway to Universal.
6:28AM train, in Union Station at 7:20AM; Red Line 7:27AM train, in at Universal Station at 7:56AM
6:58AM train, in Union Station at 7:50AM; Red Line 7:57AM train, in at Universal Station at 8:26AM
Get a cab from station to hotel, or walk up 30% incline. At least that's what it seems like.
Home: need to catch 4:50, 5:40, or 6:30 train, so subtract about 45 minutes from any of these times for a departure from Universal Red Line station, in order to catch train in Union Station. (Extra time to allow for just missing a subway train, and having to wait 10 minutes.)
