ABC Daytime once again will partner with Colgate Total Toothpaste as its presenting sponsor of the event, which will be held November 13-14, 2004, at the Disney-MGM Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

Throughout the weekend fans will have the opportunity to meet favorite stars from the three ABC Daytime dramas. Festivities include celebrity motorcades, autograph sessions, game shows, interviews and the chance to purchase one-of-a-kind memorabilia from each of the shows.

Soap stars will also be in the "Hot Seat" for special editions of the theme park's game show attraction, "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire - Play It!" The attraction, based on the television game show, will feature daytime drama-related questions, as the audience of more than 600 plays the game along with their favorite daytime stars.

SSW 9 also features live musical performances by several cast members in the nightly Colgate Total Street Jam, which will light the night on the theme park's main stage. Prior to the Street Jam, all of the ABC Daytime stars will take a Tinseltown-style ride down the theme park's Hollywood Blvd. - accompanied by their favorite Disney 'toon pals - in the star-studded Grand Motorcade.

Some exciting changes have been made to this year's star-studded event lineup.  Check this out!
