    Disney has announced that this year's Super Soap Weekend (Nov. 15-16 at Disney's Hollywood Studios) will be the last such event. Instead, ABC will embark on a "Soap Nation Tour" in 2009. That will be several events nationwide in different cities.

    "The new year will bring new ways we will involve our stars in more events, in more cities, more often," Brian Frons, head of ABC Daytime, said in a release. The specific events listed are a three-day cruise (from Los Angeles to Mexico), contests with a trip to New York and Broadway Cares and participation in the CMA Music Festival. The release says more "fan experiences" will be announced in the new year.

    Disney also released a partial list of stars attending this year's Super Soap. Cameron Mathison (All My Children) will be hosting. Others announced so far are Rebecca Budig, Aiden Turner and Thorsten Kaye from AMC, Erika Slezak, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson from One Life to Live; and Kelly Monaco, Laura Wright and Jason Thompson from General Hospital. Complete lineups will be released tomorrow.

    Super Soap Weekend will tout special clip packages honoring the 45th anniversary of General Hospital, the 40th anniversary of One Life and the 10,000th episode of All My Children.

    The nightly street jam will continue and have a special musical number "that honors the final event."

    I'm with you! I am so not a soap opera fan. :(

    My sister, however is going to be totally upset. She wanted to come this year, but can't make it. She was planning to come next year...

    I'll give her a call tomorrow and break the news. :sigh;
