I only use ganache under fondant and never refrigerate after covering with fondant - you'll probably find and your fondant will go very soft and slimy after being in the fridge.

I refridgerate them ALL the time and have never had a problem. I cover them on friday and leave them uncovered in the fridge until saturday afternoon.
My fridge is very modern and the environment is dry inside - I guess it would be different with an older fridge that doen't handle condensation as well.
And also to not cover it. It needs to be left without a box or such so teh air can circulate.
And not have sliced garlic, onions or anything else smelly int there!

Pipe a icing dam to prevent oozing or make your ganache thicher. I have left a ganache filled, fondant covered cake out at room temp for 24 -30 hours without any spoilage.
