To be honest, I'd be surprised if you can find overnight parking that is allowed in much of Florida at rest areas or Walmarts or the like. Since it's such a touristy area, I think they crack down on that pretty hard.
Of course, this is all hearsay and guessing.
My guess is you're going to need to find a cheap campground to stop at.
