    There is already the ability to Hide widgets.  We do this all the time.  You just create the widget in the theme and mark it as "Hide" until you want it viewable by customers.  Uncheck "hide" for the duration you want to show the widget, then you re-hide it when you are done.  You can then can leave it there until the next time you need it:

     

     

    This however does not facilitate automatically showing and hiding a widget on a scheduled time, you have to do it manually.

    Good idea Joshua; perhaps you should open this up as a new feature request; I'd vote for it
