My experience at week one, SSW 2002 by Karyl
Little did I know that if one wants to get an autograph and a
with La Lucci, they had better be at Disney at 6 a.m. You need a wrist
that is the time they pass it out, and they are in hot demand. So
early on I
decided so much for La Lucci.
I found finding each of the stars very easy. I was so glad that
decided to space SSW over 3 weekends. I did go to SSW-FL November,
and I found
it disorganized. I hope the next SSW in FL will take heed of how
things went in
CA and do the same. The reason I say this is I will not go to SSW-FL
unless they change. I would like to see each soap given its own
my favorite people are from GH, I had make them my priority. I was
to get one GH signature and that was Ingo's. He had a 4 hour wait.
If the next SSW-FL does change things I would decide only to go to
the week GH
is there. Then I believe I would be able to get more for my money.
What I liked about SSW this time was that when you were in line, the
people did a count and would close the line when they felt it was

my photographer and he took a couple with each of the stars I was
I was able to see Brooke, Kendall and Bianca. I found the 3 ladies
professional, classy and extremely nice. While in line waiting for
Jake was signing autographs. Many of the fans were calling out his
name and he
would turn around just so those in line could take pictures of him.
that very nice of the actor to do.
Another actress that I found very nice to the fans was Greenlee. Her
packed and I was not lucky enough to get in it. There were many
standing in front of her trying to capture a picture of her. She
would look up
occasionally, smile and wave to us. I honestly believe she was doing
so we could get pictures of her.
The fans were also very nice. They would quickly take their pictures
out of the way so others may have a chance.
I can not wait until next week to see the stars of OLTL. My fav,
there. I am hoping to GOD you dont need a wrist band, like with La

As I looked at the book that Disney passed out to us, I noticed that
every cast member was present. The only ones not in attendance were
Haley and some of the older ones like Joe & Ruth. I hope the cast of
follow suit, but I'm not holding my breathe. So far I see that the
GH people are not coming. Ingo, Maurice, Tony, Genie. I think if
Erica Slezak and David Canary can come to these things so can our GH
