Leaving sfb on heading for lakeland I contacted orl approach for flight following. En route I was directed from original heading due to traffic. After radar termination I was disoriented and inadvertently entered tpa arsa. After realizing position with sectional, immediate contact with tpa approach was initiated and position given. Tpa approach assisted me in reaching lakeland. After landing a complete explanation was given to mr X (tpa approach supervisor).
