Getting to Disney Marketplace without a car

I love Disney Marketplace, hate Disney Springs. Have been visiting for many years, and now that I am physically disabled visiting has become a nightmare. Can never park in 'lime' parking nearest to Marketplace, and all other parking is much too far away. It appears my only options are valet parking, or getting to Marketplace by Disney transportation.

Does anyone know where I could use my Florida disabled parking permit to park close to Disney transportation that goes to Marketplace?

Also it appears that wheelchairs/scooters can only be hired at one place in the whole of Disney Springs, and that is as far away from marketplace as it gets!, right at the other end, to which they also have to be returned!!

I have queried this all with Disney, usual polite 'oh dear', but nothing constructive offered by way of a solution.

Could you use a taxi, Uber or Lyft and get dropped off?

Does the parking garage not have wheelchairs for customers use? Last time we were there I was sure I saw some for customers usage ..anyone know if that s right, as you could use one to get to where they rent scooters, and back again.

It isn't really cost effective to rent at Disney Springs. Most people only spend a few hours there and they require a $100 deposit (it is refundable) and the actual rental is $50.

Are you going to the parks? If you are it would probably be cheaper to do an offsite rental for your entire stay.
