Here in the Seattle area, we ride in wet conditions all winter long - my road bike has been through many deep puddles and my mountain bikes through numerous deep, dirty hub-suckin puddles. In the winter, I service my chain weekly, and the freehub every few months. But after one dunking, I would not be taking everything apart. Just store the bike where it can dry out, and it should be fine. Of course this is highly dependent on the quality and design of the components on your bike.
