Due to extended family strife we are looking for touristy type things to do around DFW airport area. Activities must be toddler friendly. Sorry for short notice.

These are all cab or car ride away:

Dallas World Aquarium is nice. Haven't been there in a while so check pricing online. Klyde Warren Park within walking distance, good for early in the day.

Six Flags in Arlington. But the big roller coaster is shut down.

Ft Worth Stockyards in North Fort Worth. Fort Worth Zoo.

There is a resort called Great Wolf Lodge not far. Has a water park. Don't know if you can just do the water park if you don't stay.

Perot Museum of Nature and Science (buy your tickets online if going on a weekend)

The Tarantula train runs from Grapevine to the Stockyards in Ft. Worth (believe it's Fri-Sun only).

There's a LEGOLAND center at Grapevine Mills mall that the kiddos might like (G Mills isn't my favorite place in the world though, and it's posted 30.06 so no-go if you carry).

You can go watch the airplanes land at DFW at Founder's Plaza.

There's NRH20 waterpark in N Richland Hills, a much smaller waterpark than Hurricane Harbor.

How long will you be here and how big is the family?

The Aquarium sounds like a safe bet, since my daughter loves to look at "ffeeeeessshhhhhh".

We did the Stockyard last time we were here.

Leaving on Saturday afternoon.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Only guests staying at Great Wolf can use the water park - kinda pricey, but fun
