On St Maarten I recommend Maho beach (airport beach). Took this video with my phone. Get there before 11am. Gets real exciting 45 seconds in

On St Thomas I recommend going to see Blackbeard castle. It can be done as an excursion (not sure what disney offers) or you can rent a jeep and check it out on your own. I'm a big OBX guy and Blackbeard was caught and executed in Ocracoke. Small children may have difficulty as there are a lot of steps.

OMG! It looks like the people on the beach could've touched that plane! Now my DH wants to go there!

There aren't a whole lot of big planes that land there. Maybe 6 or so a day. And usually only 1 of them is a 747. KLM airlines was this plane flying in from Amsterdam. It was scheduled at 11:45 but arrived 20 minute early. It was a 45 minute cab ride from the port as traffic sucks on the island but it was well worth it. It's not the best beach as the waves were a little high for the kids but seeing getting that video.....I must watch it once a day.

After the 747 came in, we headed back to a calm little beach that had a water taxi back to the port. The kids loved it. Calm warm water, plenty of umbrellas and servers to bring you beverages 0

I'm not sure but it was along what they call the boardwalk. Lots of bars/restaurants along it. We sat staring at the cruise ships on the other side of the harbor.

We went shopping you got to choose how long, tour of the island with some great phoo ops and the to the beach, ot to choose between coki or Magen's. we relly enjoyed it and it was only $30/pp which I think was a steal.

We did the full day snorkle to Bucks Island and Honeymoon Beach, loved every minute of it. My girls(age 13 and 10) also loved it.

I am told that when you go to St. Thomas, you must take a tour of St. Johns. They say it's beautiful.
