Dreaming of a VIP Soap Experience

If you listened to our latest episode of Theme Park Thursday, you know that I absolutely loved Super Soap Weekend held at MGM (yes MGM).

While working in Epcot, Disney decided to do a contest where they would pick a few Cast Members to switch jobs for a day. Luckily it was extended to Operating Participants, like myself. The one job I reeeeeeeeally wanted was to work in Guest Relations at MGM, specifically VIP Tours, during Super Soap Weekend! In this role, I would be assigned to a Soap actor/actresses and guide them from place to place throughout the event. Sounds awesome right? I was really excited to throw my name in the hat!

And then…..I didn’t get it <cue womp womp music>.

I know this post is a bit anticlimactic but hey, at least I went for it, right? I still loved being able to attend the event, get a few photo ops, listen to Q&A and immerse myself in Disney and Soaps.

Oh, and that larger than life Steve Burton (aka Jason Morgan) poster that hung in 3 of my homes? Here it is!

Which soap leading lady did Frank blindly think once hit it off with him? Which soap leading man did Jen miss having a second encounter with at a bar mitzvah? The Phoenix rises again & again on the latest edition of TPT with reflections of Super Soap Weekend, all the former ABC soaps, Ralph Breaks the Internet, blurting out the official dates of the #switcherooskadoo, and which voice actor in this summer’s ‘Lion King’ is one of the Dillos not a fan of…Oh, and Frank is taking a quick trip to WDW this weekend.

Tomorrow’s Blog: ’1992Mania’

If you listened to the most recent edition of Theme Park Thursday with Dillo’s Diz, one of the Dillos (NO SPOILERS) found themselves surprised. Needless to say, the next couple of episodes will be focused on how much of Walt Disney World can be conquered in a minimal amount of time.

One thing is for sure… this will not be the time for the Dillos to have a go at the Parkeology Challenge. We are BIG fans of the all-attractions-in-one-day craze that some of the biggest Disney fans are attempting but, we suspect we won’t see the ever present light of the Animal Kingdom the first weekend of November.

This led me to ponder, what would be something the Dillos would do that could be in the spirit of Parkeology, but not the Parkeology Challenge?

Enter ‘1992Mania’.

The ‘Mania’ due to my penchant for professional wrestling.

When we were doing Theme Park Thursday on The Improviser’s Guide Podcast earlier this year Mr. Snydillo (with Mrs. Dillo) was a guest, giving us the what for after the shocking twist that was us not liking the Animal Kingdom too much. Mr. Snydillo then implied that we two of Dillo’s Diz like nothing that was introduced to Walt Disney World after 1992.

This is not a true statement, of course (though not confirmed by Fact Checker Mel Dale). Tower of Terror, the Boardwalk, the March of the First Order… all introduced after 1992!!! Those are just a few examples.

And… Summit. Plummet.

Do I think we will attempt ‘1992Mania’ in two weeks time? I know not. But it is something that will be up for discussion on the 10/25 edition of Theme Park Thursday with Dillo’s Diz! For now, enjoy our growing list of attractions from 1992 and earlier – let us know what we’re missing or inaccurate on!
