This place is really amazing when the sun goes down. All the fountains are lit and the light reflects off of all the walls with the Washington monument in the back ground. Amazing!

As long as you feel necessary! I will say that an average people spend 45 minutes. Plenty to see and learn in the area and is free.
Is there disabled parking next to the memorial?

I believe there is, when i visited there was a lot of visitors in wheel chairs, and good disabled access to the memorial. The veterans in question had come by coach, but i am sure there was car parking there as well.
