Staged pages in Advanced Menu


Can I add a staged page to an advanced menu if there is a live page with the same name?

I am building a full site refresh and all of my new, staged pages will replace the existing live pages. When I add the staged pages to the advanced menu (they appear to be the staged ones as they have links like "") then add the menu to my templates, they link to the live pages not the staged ones.

Ideally I don't want to hard code the links using "URL Link" in the Advanced Menu because I want the links to point to the live site once I push the whole staged site live.

Actually what I'd like is a way to iterate over the menu items to build by own custom menu structure but that doesn't seem possible (unless I use HubDB, but then I have to hard code all the urls, so same problem).
