Visiting a resort before heading back to airport

We will be down at WDW April 2nd - 4th, unfortunately not visiting the parks but instead checking out some surrounding areas because the wife and I are considering moving down that way. But we are staying at POP for those 3 days since WDW was in the middle of where we are looking and well, why not right?

We usually just use Disney transportation whenever we are down there for vacation but this time we have a rental car. The day we fly out of Orlando we want to check out of POP and then hang out at AKL for a bit before heading to the airport later that afternoon. Mainly have some lunch at the Mara and maybe a drink or 2 at the pool bar.

What is usually the amount of time you can park and hangout at the resort for as a guest since we are not actually staying there, is it something like 3 hours? I've never bothered researching it since we never have a car anyways. Do they keep track of how long you are there?

If you just want to check out the resort you are normally allowed up to 3 hours. If you valet your car for $15, you can stay all day. And with AKL not having direct access to a park like the monorail resorts or the Epcot are resorts, the 3 hour time limit is probably a mute point. Just inform the guard your intentions and about how long you will be there and they will advise.
