I cannot imagine it would be a problem. We have soooo many out of state visitors, I cannot imagine they would give you a hard time. Maybe you could call your local police department. They may know the rules for out of state disabilited visitors. Maybe it is a national rule.

I have no clue what the law is but I have seen and heard from others that a large percentage of people using it over here don't even need it and are misusing the system just because they are lazy. One person in my street has one due to asthma and so called "not able to walk for longer times"...while she can walk her dogs for a long time, be on a bike and even when one of my kids has trouble due to asthma attacks due to brush fires...this lady can walk outside with her dogs and shopping...no trouble...
Even a few of my kids friends have these tags gotten by people who worked at the DMV in other States and they use them to be lazy!

It is even worse when one of my friends father comes over here and he is from out of State and paralized and needs a wide space to get his wheelchair from behind the wheel and get out on the side and all places are taken by people who walk perfectly....(I understand that some things aren't easy to see by the eye....)..I know he uses his out of State tag over here so I assume it is allowed!

At the new mall at Wiregrass they check several times a day if a tag is on the car or on the mirror.

According to the Florida DMV, they honor the tags from any of the other states, no issues at all, as long as it is valid. Even then if it wasn't valid, i doubt there would be a issue.

So bring it, and have a great trip!
