Two days and counting……
Yes, two more days until we get up at the ungodly hour of 5 a.m. and stand in line with thousands at the 12th annual ABC Super Soap Weekend at Disney World in Orlando.
But it’s worth it!
And the latest buzz is that Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery on All My Children) will be dancing in the Street Jam on Saturday night with Edyta, his professional dance partner on Dancing With The Stars.
And for all of you who don’t watch DWTS, Cam is in the final five, thanks to all of the support from his soap fans voting for him (me included) —- and, of course, his hard work, which really shows.
I would LOVE to see those two dance, because I’m crazy about the show!
The previous two years, Kara and I, have been too tired to stay and watch the musical performances by the ABC stars in the Street Jam because it begins about 7:30 p.m.
After waking up at 5 a.m. and going constantly all day, we’re usually out of there by 6:30. I’ll have to wait and see how exhausted I am because we have to get up the same time on Sunday for round two.
So here’s my plan….
And by plan I mean who I want to meet one-on-one at the autograph sessions. And to do so, I must pull a FastPass – of which there are limited quanties – for each actor. (I explained the FastPass process in an earlier blog).
Here’s my wish list:
All My Children: Michael E. Knight (Tad), David Canary (Adam), Cameron Mathison (Ryan), Thorsten Kaye (Zach).
One Life To Live: Michael Easton (John), Erika Slezak (Viki).
General Hospital: Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Jason Thompson (Patrick), Kelly Monaco (Sam), Julie Berman (Lulu), Kimberly McCullough (Robin), Sonya Eddy (Epiphany).
I really, really want to meet GH’s Bradford Anderson – but so does just about everyone else….His FastPass is going to be the first to go on Saturday – guaranteed. So I’m going to aim for a standby FastPass on Sunday for him.
The GH line is always ridiculously long, so I may just get in the AMC line first thing on Saturday and try to grab at least two FastPasses from there.
OR I may get in the OLTL line first, try to get Michael or Erika or both and then zip over to the AMC line and save GH for Sunday, when there are usually less people.
The FastPasses are usually gone by 9:30 a.m.
Kara and I usually meet up after we get all our FastPasses and compare times and locations. From there, we decide what other events we can attend based on our autograph times.
I’d like to hear one of the Super Soap Talk Shows and also see the Triple Play Game Show, which we’ve never done.
So there you have it….My wish list…I’ll report back on which of those wishes come true.
Come back tomorrow for Kara’s Super Soap wish list.
Two days and counting……
