Drop Off Zones at Parks

We are not staying at a Disney Hotel we are staying 20 minutes away from the Orlando Walt Disney World and the Walt Disney Studios. I was wondering if there is a Drop Off Zones close to the gates so I can drop of my two teenagers who want to visit the two parks. They are old enough to go on their own so just want to drop them off in the morning and pick them up near the end of the night.

So looking for information on this, and any restrictions and times of drop off and pick ups.

As you pull up to the parking plaza just tell the cast member that you are only dropping off the teens. They will tell you where to go. It's different for each park so be sure to ask. You won't need to pay for this.

The other option is to drop them at a resort. They can then take the bus to the park they wish.

As above, go to the parking lots as normal, then explain to the attendant what you are doing. Note the new rule this year children must be 14 or older to enter the theme parks by themselves.
