Newbie question regarding check in\out at CBR


We plan to spend a few days at WDW before we leave on our cruise on The Dream in May. Never stayed at any of the Disney resorts before. We were originally planning to fly in on a Thurs night with the plan to do the parks on Fri and Sat. Now it looks like we'll be flying in late Wed night (11 pm!). Not wanting to spend the extra $ to add another night at CBR when we'll be getting in so late anyway. We will have a car rental so not concerned with the magical express or luggage service.

If we just stay at a cheap hotel near MCO, are we able to drive over CBR on Thurs morning, check in and then spend the day at the pools, beach area etc even though our room won't be ready until that afternoon? Not too worried about our luggage since we'll have a car but is there somewhere to change into swimsuits? I just want to make sure we'll have access to the resorts amenities before the official check in time.

Also we plan to drive to the port late Sat night and stay there before our cruise leaves on Sun. We do still plan to do the parks on Sat but since we'll be considered resort guests just Thurs and Fri nights at CBR are we able to take advantage of free parking at the parks on Sat still and /or shuttle service that day? Or does that stop right after the 11 am checkout time.

Sorry, if this was confusing. I'm going crazy trying to plan all this out along with a FL road trip right after our cruise. Thanks in advance. Oh also my daughter has a BBB appt at DTD on Fri afternoon. Feasible to do a park that morning then leave for the appt and come back to the park? Would getting to our car be a huge process? Easier to take the shuttles?
