Women I will say mostly do the planning. I'm probably in the minority of men that does all the planning. My DW is just like everyone's DH. She tells me to tell her when and where to be, and she'll be there. I try to get her involved, but she usually just leaves it up to me. She tells me being the Aries that I am, she knows I won't miss much and we'll have a fun trip.

Wife and I do it together. We spend a lot of time planning which park which day, dinner and lunch reservations etc.... We enjoy the time together as otherwise we have different hobbies. Latest trip we are planning is first to DLR (previously 5 times WDW 1999 music, 2000 off prop, 2004 off prop, 2008 WL, 2011 BWV) and we are making it a surprise for the kids. Real pain in the you know where trying to do it the QT but we are still having a lot of fun planning

When my dad and I go, we share the planning. He does the major things like booking rooms and flights, ADRs, etc. I help make the decisions, do the park itineraries, help choose what ADRs and what parks, etc.

When I go with my fiancé's family. The only think I don't do it the AAA TA side because she the the AAA member and I am not. I plan everything else. And I mean EVERYTHING.

I do all the planning in our family. I have been working on our Disney trip for a year and I bet my DH would struggle to even tell you the hotel we will be staying at!

I do all the planning for my family. For every vacation.

I am more patient than my husband so I usually track down the better deals.

And my husband never bothers with having a plan when he travels yet comes home saying he didn't get to everything he wanted to do.

When I do the planning, we get to everything on our list and sometimes extra things.

I plan everything! Every last detail! I would love for my fiancee to help but he always strays away from the planning part and has absolutely no interest. Every time (it doesn't fail) when we get to the destination, he wants to change something . Last time, we were staying at the POR and when we were on the monorail later in the day he saw the GF and wanted to go see if we could switch our reservation and stay there . He becomes a planner at the last minute.

I took over the planning once the addiction really began, probably first time on property, of course we pick a lot of the details together.
