What's there to do in Irvine, California instead of WWDB Amway FED 2012?

Here's another of my guides about better things to do in town instead of attending an Amway function.
This year WWDB Amway Free Enterprise Days will be held in Irvine, California October 5 to 7 2012 at the Bren Events Center.
You can  reach a lot of attractions and beaches inside an hour or so drive of Irvine and I think most people are aware of these places so there's not much more I can say. And just a heads up. Every attraction and beach is gonna charge you more than a few bucks to park in their lot. There is no shortage of shopping and large malls in the area like the Irvine Spectrum Center or the South Coast Plaza. Good places to come and drown your sorrows shopping if you're married to an ambot wasting money on Amway! 
Disneyland is the big attraction in southern California and Anaheim is not too far from Irvine and its way better and cheaper than going to WWDB Amway FED. One day ticket costs $87 if you're older than 10. Slightly less if you're under 10 and different prices if you're buying a 2 day package or California resident or buy in advance. I can't figure out the October schedule so check ahead. I'll say hours are approximately 8am to 6pm. The thing is Mickey's having a Halloween party in October and the park reopens after regular hours for late night spooky fun. Different admission prices and hours. By the time you pay for parking, buy a ticket, eat meals in the park, and buy souvenirs, you're probably pretty close to spending the same amount of money as a ticket to FED but you'll have a whole lot more fun at Disneyland!
Orange County Zoo is inside Irvine Park and is a pretty good deal at $2. Check out the bears and imagine setting them loose inside an Amway function! Hours are 10am to 3:30pm.
I'm going to throw in Knott's Berry Farm even though its not my favorite park there are people who would probably want to go there seeing as how they're this close anyway and in October it becomes Knott's Scary Farm. The last time I was there during the day in October the staff were having fun with the nighttime effects and dropping big fake spiders on us while we were waiting for the Timber Mountain log ride to start. Yeah ha ha that really scared me. One day pass is $57.99 and less if you're under 12 or a senior. Also less if you buy tickets ahead of time online. The Scary Farm admission starts at $36 if you buy ahead of time but there's not any information yet on the price at the gate or the late hours. There always seem to be coupon books flying around with discounts to Knott's. 10am to 5:30pm during FED weekend.
There are lots of beaches in the area. Head the car to PCH and drive north or south until you find a beach you like.
Or get out of Irvine and spend a day at Universal Studios or take a tour of the star's homes. Or down to San Diego to visit the zoo or Sea World. Everything you want is inside a 2 hour drive. I have a few favorite things that I like to do that are free except for the parking and not in this area - hint hint go north go south.
But maybe the real tourist attraction in Irvine on October 5 will be at FED. You need to keep this a secret so you don't spoil the fun but Joecool is visiting in LA that week and we plan to hook up. I know someone whose son has a friend that works at the Bren Center and doesn't know his shifts yet for that weekend but whether or not he's working he told me he can get us in to wander around behind the scenes. Yes!!!!! What kind of mischief can we get into? Air horn distractions and other fun that can be blamed on Halloween spooks running around the building. Top secret stuff for me to report back on the ambot convention!


  1. I have been following your blog for some time now and this is one post that I really liked! Yeah I look back at my days where me and my wife realize now that you need to live everyday rather than dying in dreams and hopes.

    1. Hi amwayscam. It's always nice to have someone stop by and say how much they appreciate what we're doing here getting our message out. A lot of people have been hurt financially and emotionally and know they are not alone when we reach out to help them. Your wife has the right attitude!

  2. With all do respect you sure do sound miserable. And I can surely see you love company. Amway or not, why are you such a negative soul? Go ahead and give me your "anna banana style" bonkers. Doesn't mean jack. But if that'll make you feel better to let your anger out on someone, then go ahead. Shoot it!

    Most ppl seem to talk about things like calling it a cult when they truly haven't even discovered if that's true or not for themselves. Lack of knowledge. As long as you're not being held against your will, if your husband chooses to do so and isn't being forced into anything, you can't blame that Amway stuff. Like I said Amway or not it goes for anything.

    I had a sister who used to say I was part of a cult becuz I went to church and got baptized. She knew nothing about what I was doing or where I would go, etc. Years later she got baptized herself and now goes to church..haha. Well, "welcome to the cult!"


Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
