Driving from resorts to parks each day?

I'm not sure if this should be posted in resorts or theme park strategies.

I have posted some questions about staying at POR. Last time we stayed at Poly largely due to ease of getting to the parks. We have 3 little ones (currently 7, 5, and 2) and felt like it would be very challenging getting on and off buses with a double stroller and diaper bag, etc. Our 5 year old daughter also has Down syndrome and can't walk very far without tiring and also has a tendency to dart away from us so we have to hold her hand or she could get lost or run out in the street.

We are considering POR because it would be cheaper but I'm wondering if we should stick with a monorail resort for the same reasons as last time. From the Poly, we took monorail to MK and Epcot (our most frequented parks) and drove our car to AK and HS.

If we stayed at POR, could we just drive to the parks every day? We didn't think driving was bad at all but we only did it two days. We could leave when we wanted without waiting for a bus. We just had to wait a bit to park and then walk in the lot to the entrance (we had 2 of the kids in the stroller so it was easier than folding it up for the parking lot transportation.

Thoughts? Is there something that I'm missing? If we had 3 kids who could just get up on the bus themselves, then it wouldn't be a big deal. But with little ones who need help and us having a bag and stroller, I'm wondering if it will just be too much.
