I would pull the battery and the AC and continue to let it dry for another 24 hours. Five hours is not long enough, and it's not safe to assume it's dry just because it's working.

Personally, I'd spend the 10 minutes it takes to pop the topcase, and clean up any residue you find with q-tips and rubbing alcohol. Especially if it's under warranty, you really want to do this, because the fact that water has been inside will likely be readily apparent when an Apple tech goes inside, if you don't clean it up. But since it was only water, I don't think it's absolutely critical that you go inside, especially if it functions fine, and the keys are not sticking.
