Are you able to take drinks, sandwiches, snacks in with you when visiting theme parks in Qld? There are no food allergies in our family but we would still like to be able to take in snacks/drinks with us. Is it possible? A a few years about there was talk of a ban.

We have never had an issue with it. We do have allergies in the family but no one has ever looked at our bags.

I've done it over two visits the last two years (last in April 12) and had no issue with it.

No problem at all. We've had annual passes for 3 years now covering all 5 parks across that time. I take food EVERY time. Bags never even get looked at.

I have had my bags checked at Dreamworld and Aussie World, not at any of the others.

I did there a while ago, there are signs saying not to, but they don't check bags. That being said, I had shocking morning sickness at the time, and there was no way they were taking my crackers and dried fruit off me.

We have Seaworld, Movieworld and Wet n Wild passes and have never been checked but I only take a small backpack.
But if you take an obvious food carryall ie. esky or big bag that looks like having food etc in it I would say they will check.
I have seen people try and take an esky, a small one and they were told to put it in their car.

It depends on the individual ones. Baby food and dietary needs are okay. I think Movieworld & Seaworld you can't, but Wet'n'Wild you can.
I have been bag searched in the past

I was at sea world on Sunday and not only were people bringing in there own food but sitting at the food court tables and openly making up wraps and sandwiches and no one said anything. Those who actually purchased food had to (in our case, anyway) perch on th side of a flower bed to eat.I say go for it.

The water parks welcome it. (wet n wild, whitewater world)
Dream, Sea and Movie World's all state in their terms of entry that you are not allowed to.
You can get pass outs to go and eat in the carpark though! (be nice if they shaded them)
I have dietary issues, so have always taken mine, they have never checked. Majority of the food at the theme parks are bread based, burgers and rolls and wraps and sandwiches. I was extremely happy the other day at Wet n Wild where they had 2 different types of salad (albeit both had meat, so if you were vegetarian, and could not eat bread like me, chips were looking good!)
