Wrapped well in plastic wrap and on the counter is fine for the day and a half they'll be there.

Would you have the time to at least throw a crumb coat of icing on the cakes sometime today? Icing usually helps keep the moisture in the cake.

Crumb coat if you can. Either way, wrap well and freeze. The freezing will stop any staling. The fridge slows thing a little but is more likely to dehydrate - mostly because people don't wrap as tightly as they do for the freezer.

so should the fridge be okay if they are cumb coated and wrapped super tight? ironically i made all the icing already to my sons specifications and now he decided "he doesn't like the icing (it's lemon flavored) and maybe i should just use fondant instead, oh and mom can we put chocolate in the middle instead" he just broke his arm monday but i may break the other one by saturday! lol

Wrap tight and pick the easiest for you - fridge or freezer. Saturday will be fine.
