(IDEA) I have always thought a Disney-Atlantic Ocean Beach Splitter Weekend works well from St Petersburg-Tampa. Do the first night at one of the All-Star Resorts or Pop Century. With the Hotel Card, go and enjoy a bunch of the resorts. Check out the prime time pools and have a blast at the Hotel Entertainment Areas. The key to this is the Disney Hotel Card, which gives us clout at Beach Club, Swan, and the rest of the fun places. Then the party continues on the next day to Cocoa Beach or Daytona. You get a full day, night, and the next day in Daytona. That would be a nice way to divide up. (ANSWER) Perfect suggestion for all of the warmer months here in Florida. Say from May to September. That is an interesting concept and good planning except that it will be December so I don't think we will be doing any swimming, since we could hardly swim in Key West last year in October. Don't forget - if you were born in December, boo hoo for swims. Yeah, yeah for attractions.
One tip, make sure they go for a long jog or a long bike ride before heading to the park. My husband likes to bike and jog, so if I can get him to do that before going to the theme parks, he would certainly slowdown. Disney is for relaxing, not speeding through!
