you can put it in the fridge or leave out... how long do you need to store it for?

It will be fine to sit out until tomorrow. Unless your filling and/or frosting requires refrigeration.

Will the fondant get soft? No, the fondant will get hard on the outside.

But if you've got any decorations that are made from fondant, and they have any type of height (like a ribbon), don't put it inside an air tight container. The lack of air circulation will soften the fondant, and the decoration/ribbon will sag. Learned that one the hard way.
