What configurations do I lose by disabling an interface?

I need to disable all of my WAN interfaces for a short time, preferably via the GUI. They are:
1. In a CARP setup
2. With attached VIP's
3. Acting as the Gateways
4. Have a multitude of firewall rules
5. Have Firewall Aliases attached to the VIP's
6. Running OpenVPN
7. Have RRD graphing turned on
8. Who knows what else
Will I lose any of my configs/aliases/RRD graphs by disabling the interfaces? I understand that CARP will spam the logs, no external internet will be available, and so on. I'm just wondering if there are any known breakages that I should expect when disabling/enabling interfaces on such a setup. (Yes, I'll create a solid backup of the systems before I go breaking things.) Also, I'm not opposed to rebooting after re-enabling the interfaces, but it would be nice to have a heads up before walking into this storm.
