If you’re an ABC soap fan planning on going to Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL on November 15 and 16th, consider yourself lucky. This will be the last year for fans to attend Super Soap Weekend. The weekend has always been a favorite of fans so that they can see and interact with their favorite soap stars. However ABC does not want to disappoint us. This year there will be special retrospectives and productions scheduled. There will be the traditional parade and autograph signing. Plus bring your cameras so you can get all the pictures of your favorites!

The reason that ABC is making this Super Soap Weekend the last one is simple. Next year ABC wants to do more events in more cities. Instead of one large event, they want to have smaller events throughout the year. This way fans will have a better chance to see their favorite stars from All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. It’s a win-win situation all around.

The list of stars scheduled to attend are:

From All My Children, Rebecca Budig (Greenlee Smythe Devane), Bobbie Eakes (Krystal Martin), Melissa Claire Egan (Annie Lavery), Ricky Paull Goldin (Jake Martin), Thorsten Kaye (Zach Slater), Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery), Alicia Minshew (Kendall Hart Slater), Eden Riegel (Bianca Montgomery), Aiden Turner (Aidan Devane), and Darnell Williams (Jesse Hubbard).

From One Life to Live, Kristen Alderson (Starr Manning), Brandon Buddy (Cole Thornhart), Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer), Michael Easton (John McBain), Farah Fath (Gigi Morasco), Susan Haskell (Marty Saybrooke), John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex Balsom), Erika Slezak (Viki Davidson), Jason Tam (Markko Rivera), Brittany Underwood (Langston Wilde), and Bree Williamson (Jessica Brennan/Tess Brennan).

Last but not least, the stars from General Hospital, Bradford Anderson (Damian Spinelli), Brandon Barash (Johnny Zacchara), Julie Marie Berman (Lulu Spencer), Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine), Jason Cook (Matt Hunter), Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber), Kelly Monaco (Samantha McCall), Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones), Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake), Laura Wright (Carly Jax).
