Resort Help Needed and other 1st timer questions

We are in the very early stages of planning a trip. We are a family of 5. My youngest has Cerebral Palsy. She is fully mobile, but does wear an afo, and wears out easily. She is currently 6, will be 7 when we go next summer. She has gone to 6 Flags and does well for a day.

We are looking at getting one of the 5 people rooms in Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. Do the rooms have shower shower bars? She has a hard time getting out of the tub when she is all wet and slippery. I don't want a roll in shower, cause she prefers the tub. But when I was looking I can't find how to book that. Or do all the rooms have bars and I don't need to worry? Is there closer rooms for disabled people or are they all extra money?

We have disability parking from TX. I though I read that we can use this in FL without having to do anything special, right? Is is better to drive our van around or take Disney transportation? And if we drive is there enough disability parking for us to be able to park up close for her? What about if we go to another resort for dinner? Like I was looking at going to the Grand Floridian one night for dinner and looking around.

Should I get her a rental stroller? I worry that after a few days she will be really worn out. I found some bigger ones that would work and then I would have a spot for her to sit. Do they still have the Stroller as a Wheel Chair?
