Depending on why the Apple ID was originally disabled, you may be able to re-activate and update your CC info as follows:

Sign into: https://appleid.apple.com/

Once logged in, toward the bottom of the screen you will see a section labeled "Payment & Shipping"

Click "Edit Payment Information..." and update your card details as needed.

While signed in make sure all other information presented is correct and current, as well - especially trusted phone numbers and any email addresses on file.

Once that is done, you may need to sign outback in and back in on any devices using this Apple ID for the Stores.
