ABC Super Soap Weekend (1996–2008) was an event organized in conjunction with Disney and ABC to bring soap opera actors from various ABC shows to visit and mingle with their fans.

The first ABC Super Soap Weekend was organized and held at Disney's Hollywood Studios near Orlando in 1996 (the same year Disney merged with ABC). The event was traditionally held around Veterans Day weekend each year. In addition, a summertime Super Soap Weekend was held at Disney California Adventure Park on the West Coast in 2002 & 2003.

The final edition of the event was held November 15–16, 2008. A new event titled "Soap Nation" began in January 2009 and featured many events across the country that allowed you to meet your favorite actors and actresses. It proved not to be as successful as Super Soap Weekend and was discontinued briefly after, especially as ABC's daytime division experienced budget cuts and many of the network's programs ended.
