No, it is not a good idea. In many occasions leaving the dewaxed sections in DW for prolonged periods of time can cause the section to peel off (not always, but sometimes).
The idea is to dewax and do the special stains immediately after.

I need some information on special stains in regards to handling of slides. Would it be good practice to deparaffinize and rehydrate slides then allow them to sit in water over night or over the weekend before doing the actual staining?
