I'm not sure about the entire leaving the pump there and storing milk, but I can tell you breastfeeding at WDW is very easy. I was nursing our little one who was 3 month last year when we went. I would go into the Nestle center, on rides if dark (Pirates, The little Mermaid Show, The Great Movie ride etc...) or in a corner when we were eating at CS. I also would  go t o benches away from people and nurse her under a blanket. She was the easiest of all 3 kids last year.

I have been nursing Katherine at Disney World for two years now.  I have seen moms pumping in the nursing rooms at the Baby Care Centers many times--one mom asked if I minded if she watched Katherine nurse because it helped to get her milk flowing.  I do not believe you can leave anything in the Baby Care Centers, though.  You can bring a cooler, and you can either carry it with you, or rent a locker to store it in.

I've breastfed my kids all over WDW and nobody has ever made a rude comment or remark.  Just be discrete and cover up.  I got a wonderful nursing shawl from One Step Ahead.

I can help with the pumping question!  At least mostly.  I exclusively pumped for my daughter and we did do a trip to DisneyLAND while I was pumping.  I would guess that it's pretty much the same.  You will have no problem taking it into the parks but there will be no place for you to store the pump.  We kept it under the stroller the whole time (man those things get heavy!)  There also is no place to store milk so we took a small lunchbox type cooler.  I was able to get ice from the first aid station any time I needed it (first aid stations are next to the baby centers).  You will have to open the cooler and pump bag, but it's not a big deal.   I don't know how the nursing centers are at WDW, but at Disneyland, they basicly had a stall that was curtained off where you could nurse our outlets to plug a pump into.  I peeked into the nursing room at the MK and it was basicly just one big room with a bunch of rocking chairs.  If it's not private enough (personally, I think that pumping is different than nursing and way more exposed) you could ask at the first aid station if they have a room.... Just a thought.  I did this at Knotts Berry Farm during that Disneyland trip because their baby changing area SUCKED...  I pumped in what was basicly a bathroom stall and no a/c so it was soooo hot and uncomfortable so after that I tried the first aid station.

The nursing rooms at MK and Epcot are both one room with several rocking chairs, and there are outlets in both for a plug.  AK has two private nursing rooms, very good sized, haven't noticed if they have outlets but I bet they do.  Studios is the worst--two rooms the size of a bathroom stall partitioned off from the rest of Baby Care with a curtain.  Not sure if they have outlets.

Like I said, I have seen several women pumping in the large nursing rooms, sometimes they turn to the wall, sometimes they don't.

Something else to consider... If you are visiting resorts, there is no place to pump, so plan accordingly!

This is one big reason I quit pumping when I did and started using formula.  I seriously couldn't just pump in front of others like that.
