Surprise nobody mentioned Cos' third album Babel, which sound like Canterbury school music goes disco.

Rolling Stones - Miss You

If you consider the Rolling Stones a "mainstream prog band" I sincerely recommend you to acquaint yourself with the basics of prog Stern Smile.
 
in the same vein, one could name Kiss with their I Was Made For Loving You song
 
 
But that hardly means that either band became disco bands

There's about 5-6 tracks from Focus' 1975 album Mother Focus that would be classified as disco.

Here's My Sweetheart.....pure disco.

Another Brick In The Wall a 3 part mini concept disco prog thing. Just get the riff from Set The Controls put it to a straight rock back beat, garnish with clean swung guitar strums and lo and behold...

... tbh I never thought of this as disco but a suitable strong and direct rhythm for the number. Rog was great at coming up with riffs...

I am now somewhat obsessed with this song. LOL Camel doing a song with obvious disco influence?? I don't even like disco but I like this song.
