Ok, so after all my St. John questions and planning hubby just says hey "instead of going to St. John lets go to Disneyworld":-o. I said we were just at Disneyworld June of 2008 why would we go back so soon plus I want to go to St. John. He says we can go anytime to St. John. Wrong...So to win this argument I said ok you go to Disneyworld and Im going to St. John. He says ok then. So just maybe you will see a lonely solo woman walking around Cruz Bay. But hey at least Im in St. John. To me St. John is a place where you would have fun even going solo. Right?

I'll get a shirt made that says my husband is at Disney while I'm here, that way everyone will know who I'am.. lol But the beach bar would be fun. The one on the beach next to the ferry dock if I'm thinking of the right one? Not Woody's right? The place is so crowded everytime I have seen it. I want to drink on the beach not the street. lol

Okay, the "I don't drink" part, yes...but you "don't hang at a bar everyday"? I am calling you on that one! 😀

Look again EE. There is an 'and' in that sentence. I guess it should have been a 'but'.

OMG-I would be devastated if my hubby wanted to go to Disney rather than the islands. I know that would never happen because the last time we went to Disney about 10 years ago we lasted about one hour in the park and left... spent the rest of the vacation by the pool. We didn't like all the crowds...the heat...and some of the obnoxious kids running around.

My suggestion would be do a comparison spread sheet for him

Disney......................................................... ST John
______........................................................ _______

Crowds.................................................... .. Quiet beaches
Spend a lot of $ on activities ..................Spend little money on activities
Hot and humid......................................... hot-but a beach to jump in every couple miles
Traffic from all the tourists......................Slow down bc a donkey may be crossing the road
Over priced fast food................................Reasonable local island food
etc..........

I'am devastated that he wont come with me but I have shown him the pics of the villa that we could afford, he looked at pics from our last anniversary trip to St. John and still no interest. That's ok, I'm officially over it and have to keep with the planning for me. I just don't honestly get it but that's his decision doesn't mean I cant go and lonely as I will be. I was thinking about signing up for a rent a husband for that week. lol Maybe I will bring him home a jackass from in the middle of the road. lol

Why not boycott the Disney trip to give him a taste of his own medicine.

Well I guess I am the lone outcast here. I love both places the US VI & Disney World. I have been to DW solo about 5 times now & love it. No kids other than one grown & married son. Now my husband would never go alone to DW but he travels around the world for his job. I have been to the VI solo about 5 times as well.
I am 60 & don't find at DW to be that crowded but then again I don't go during the summer months, or spring breaks & peak season. I been to the VI during spring break & I didn't care for it. My feeling is whatever rock your boat theory. Don't knock whatever other people like or dislikes. There is pros & cons to both cases here. I love both & go to which ever one I can go to each year. DL is not worth it nor is DL Paris. DL in Japan is well worth it. But if your husband want to go to DW let him go & you go to St John simple as that isn't it? Do you have to go together? Sometimes in a marriage it is a give & take. Been married 40 yrs now & need our space at times lol

I don't know but in my book a promise is a promise.

When we go to Orlando, the kids would rather stay at the hotel pool or a waterpark. They are not into WD. So wifey goes with her mom and I stay with the kids. Everybody's happy.

God bless you, sister!!!
GO! I haven't read all of the posts about your situation, but I'm sure someone on this forum, or others,( tripadvisor, virgin-islands-on-line,etc...) will gladly give you some company. It's a great way to make good friends. Honestly, I've always been a little jealous in a weird way of couples that enjoy separate vacations, but then again, My Sweet Amy & I always opt for St. John...(tu)
My best to you!!!
STJ is whispering your name in the winds!
Smiles-

Honestly I need the time alone as I have had to leave our home a few times this year because of issues just to clear my mind. So I think being on St. John alone will do me some good and although I'm looking forward to it I'm a little scared to be vulnerable there if something were to happen not knowing anyone and afraid to approach strangers( life time fear)...But it's just something I feel I need to do mentally for myself at this time. Thanks you for the well wishes. I pray I will be fine and all will go well. My first adventure all on my own.
