restaurants along way from walt Disney to Naples florida

We are traveling from Walt Disney world to Naples Florida with a 2 year old in March to visit my father in law. What is the best route? Does anyone know of any good playgrounds along the way (to stretch her legs) or good restaurants to stop at in between. Also if we leave at 10 am will we be hitting a ton of traffic on a Saturday? Any suggestions on routes we should take would be appreciated!

Naples Walt Disney World Resort

Most of the places I know to stop between Walt Disney World Resort and Naples are close to one or the other end. The most direct route would be down US 17 to I-75 and it does not look like there is much traffic starting at 10.  It is only a little over a 3 hour drive, so you might not need to stop.
Up near Orlando but a little off the direct route Lake Wales which has the Bok Tower gardens (but that costs money to see).  There is also the Spook Hill which doesn't cost anything but it is also off the direct route.   She might enjoy the Ringling Circus Museum but that also costs to enter.  And near Naples there is the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary but that also has an entrance fee. 
There is also Highlands Hammock State park at Sebring (only costs $6.00 a car).  That is about an hour and a half from WDW and would add about 45 minutes to the trip.  They have a little museum and a boardwalk out over the swamp.  Then you could eat someplace around there and it would be another 2 hours to Naples.  Or you could go to Corkscrew Swamp (they have a longer boardwalk out over the swamp) and eat in the cafeteria there.  That would make the total trip over 4 hours.
