So, the main cast is going to visit a disco, or [[GratuitousDiscoSequence they just feel like dancing for no good reason]]? Well, you gotta have a lot of equipment for this dance show to be a success:

* Blinking colored lights, lots of blinking colored lights
** Plain lights hung from the roof
** Floor panels that change color
** Lights in the room fixture
** UV lights to make white stuff glow
** Neon like tubes
** LED text signs
* A laser show
* A disco ball
* An awesome sound system
* Pyrotechnics and other effect machines
** A smoke machine
*** Possibly bubbles, too
** Confetti cannons
*** Or snow
** Burning stuff, like woodo-style candles
* A DJ station, at least a separate table, usually a bit raised, sometimes a full room with panorama view over the dance floor.
** At least one LP player so that the DJ can do the scratching.
** A mixing board with loads of sliders and knobs, at least a few dozen of each.
** Random high-tech equipment
* A stage, if there is a live band.
* A central main dance floor where the characters can bust some cool moves
* A bar
* Moving platforms

Of course, this is {{Truth in Television}}. But odds are high that most of the real Discos didn't have everything that almost every Disco in film and television has. Fictional Discos take the gaudiness of real Discos {{Up to Eleven}} so that [[TheCoconutEffect we know it's a Disco.]]
