Lucci, who was participating in "Dancing with the Stars" until recently, holds the distinction of being the only ABC Daytime star to attend every year since 1996. Sherri Shepherd, will return to the event for the second consecutive year and reunite with her Daytime Emmy Awards co-host, Cameron Mathison, to host the Colgate Total Street Jam.

2008 FASTPASS Policy
An "On Location Fastpass" will be needed for celebrity autographs.These will be distributed starting at 8:00am when Disney MGM Studios will be opening for this event. The following rules apply:
HOW DO I GET A FASTPASS TICKET?
* Each member of your party inserts his or her theme park ticket into the FASTPASS station or kiosk for the celebrity they wish to meet.
* If FASTPASSES are still available, they'll each receive a FASTPASS ticket with a Return Time for that celebrity's autograph session.
* To receive your autograph, just show up at the autograph location at the time designated on your FASTPASS ticket.
* A FASTPASS ticket is required for each autograph.
WHERE DO I GET A FASTPASS TICKET?
* There will be three distribution areas, one for each of the three shows.
- All My Children - Lights, Motors, Action!™ Extreme Stunt Show
- One Life To Live - Star Tours
- General Hospital - Indiana Jones™ Epic Stunt Spectacular
IS THERE A LIMIT TO THE NUMBER OF FASTPASS TICKETS I CAN GET?
* No, but there is a capacity limit for each autograph session.
* Tickets will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
CAN I GET A FASTPASS TICKET FOR A MEMBER OF MY PARTY THAT IS NOT PRESENT?
* Each Guest must be present with their theme park ticket to receive a FASTPASS.
CAN I RESERVE FASTPASS TICKETS
* Distribution of FASTPASS tickets will begin when the park opens and are only good for Autograph Sessions that same day. FASTPASS tickets will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
WILL I BE ABLE TO GET AN AUTOGRAPH WITHOUT A FASTPASS TICKET?
* FASTPASS Tickets are required to receive an Autograph.
* However, once all the FASTPASS tickets are distributed for a particular actor, a limited number of Standby tickets will be made available.
* Standby tickets do not guarantee an autograph. Standby ticket holders will be taken if there is time remaining in a session after all FASTPASS ticket holders have received their autographs.
- Arrive early! The park opens at 8am for a reason.
- If you're not an early riser, you can still enjoy your day at Super Soap Weekend. Refer to the times guide for the event and you can stop by events and see the celebs from just a few feet away.
- If you're interested in experiencing non-Super Soap Weekend attractions, waits should be minimal or at least what they would be on a non-Super Soap Weekend due to the fact nearly all of the extra people there for Super Soap Weekend are doing Super Soap events
- Arrive extra early for the parade than you usually would for the parade to get a good spot. Due to the larger than normal crowds for the special event, you'll need the extra time. (Thanks to BiergartenBabe for this tip)
