Who determines how much visitation is reasonable and fair?

The term is not visitation, the term is parenting time. Hopefully the parents themselves through, if it's a collaborative process, through the mental health professional will be able to reach an agreement as to which party is going to have majority time sharing or whether there will be 50/50 time sharing. If the parties cannot agree than there is often a child custody, or parenting plan evaluation where there would be a recommendation by a mental health professional which may or may not necessarily be followed by the court. There are a number of criteria in our Florida parenting statute which will determine parenting rights that would include parenting time.
