People who live in cities that do not have nighttime public transit and intend to attend a nighttime party will stay at the party for the entire night. In order to stay awake through the party they will take a nap during the day before preparing to go out. This is called a "disco nap".
Brad: Hey, I don't know if I can go out to the party tonight, I feel kinda tired.
Chad: Dude, take a disco nap, then you'll be energized all night.

In cities where the closing time and last call are in the hours of 3-4am and later, this late evening nap enables club goers energy when heading out around midnight.
John: Come out after dinner to pregameclubhopping!
Jane: I've gotta take a disco nap if we're going to make it to after hours.

A short passage of sleep or slumber taken while dressed, with music playing and lights on (hence the term 'disco'), with the aim that one will not fall into deep sleep, thereby allowing the disco napper to relax and recharge whilst enjoying an album, but also wake up and go out later.

Contrary to some previous definitions, musical consumption and the intention to attend a musical or social function upon waking are key elements of the disco nap, otherwise it would just be a nap.
"When I get home from work I'm gonna take a disco nap to (artist/album title), then I'll join you at the club later.",

"I haven't had time to listen to that album all the way through yet - I'll probably take a disco nap to it after work. I'll tell you what I think when I see you tonight."

The nap you take before a really big party. You know the party will be off the charts so you want to be well rested so you can keep up with all the drama, beer pong, and hook ups.
Before the Partwii, Lauren, the cyborg, bus surfed over to Mickey D’s with his brofriend Chuck Norris and bought a McGangbang happy meal with the funds that he jacked from his sugar momma after his disco nap that afternoon. Chuck pulled out his phone from his nuthuggers and started sexting a ginger slice with a tramp stamp that he had been friendly following ever since they shared a game of Jager pong. Lauren gave Chuck the air jerk as he noticed Tanasa the grade digger that sat next to him in his art class. Lauren gave her the “let’s just be friends” nod and grabbed his happy meal. As Lauren walked outside he saw, Bruce, the designated drunk, as he started wailing teenybopper show tunes. Bruce was manstrating again and wanted his fix of Dr. Pepper and Big league chew. The night of celebrating Lauren’s nomotion had barely even started and already he was knackered.

Before I go out on Friday nights, I usually need a disco nap.
