I've not used disable before but read somewhere that it doesn't use the disk space up that a drop and recreate does.
It will use the same disk space, disable's almost the same as drop, it just leaves the metadata of the index behind. To re-enable the index you have to rebuild it which is pretty much the same as recreating it, you just don't have to specify the index definition.
