Can't advise you much, but I'll answer a couple things quickly:

For first day at Rinku, as long as you don't have something *really* oversized you will be fine. I went there before with my family and they were carrying big luggages - they fit no problem.

And at the end about Dotombori - it's a street with a lot of good food, and I would definitely recommend a visit if you're doing the free pass thing.

Quickly clarifying - it's one building in that street, where they have some good food. It has an admission fee usually, so I haven't personally went yet. There's a TV outside of that place though, which shows you what you would see when you go inside - take a look and see if it suits your tastes.
