Disable keyframes from effecting animations
Quite often when working with After Effects, especially character animation work, I will need to move a bunch of keyframes further away in the timeline so that I can add in an additional pose for example. This is made incredibly difficult as any new keyframe information that is added will try to move to the animation that has been moved further in the timeline. It would be incredibly useful to be able to select the keyframes and temporarily disable them so that you can focus on the new section of animation required then reenable the keyframes when the additional poses are worked out.

As Emma suggested, add a Hold keyframe prior to the set of keyframes that you're moving in the Timeline.
That said, it would be helpful to have an eyeball for each property that can be enabled and disabled, but to disable the keyframes for the entire layer Time Span without removing the keyframe - not to do something that Keyframe Interpolation already allows for.

duplicate layer, delete keyframes, reset all, work on part and than copy it to base layer.
nut still, button for keyframes would be useful also as a option for other things as well.

Couldn't you use Toggle Hold Keyframe?
Often, character animators work pose to pose with hold frames to avoid those issues. Here's a good video demonstrating this workflow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wwH1Vahu7M

Can you add a button to disable keyframes without deleting them

Definitely! Something like the button that turns on off an expression
