If you are a zoo member at a zoo other than the Dallas Zoo be sure to take your membership card. We are members of the OKC Zoo, but forgot to take our membership card along and that would've saved 50% of admission. That adds up as entry for two adults and one child was $42 at regular admission. You will also save at concessions.
As for the zoo, we try to visit as many zoos as possible on our travels and the Dallas Zoo is one of the better zoos. The layout is easy and exhibits are well done. Make sure to ride the monorail for an overhead look at a few of the exhibits you won't see by foot. The reptile building was very interesting. And the gorilla exhibit was one of the better viewing opportunities we've seen. Our son especially enjoyed (us too) the giraffe feeding landing. Very fun.
Like most zoos the food was expensive, but actually pretty good at the cafe. We would probably go back at some point to visit again.
