I use the same belt / oscillating spindle sander you have, and have never pined for a disc sander. I was actually offered one and turned it down, because I couldn’t imagine what I would use it for.

An oscillating or random orbit action leaves a better finish than a disc sander. Anything with a grinding action will leave a surface that requires more work to finish.

The sander I thought was a great idea was the Delta bench random orbit sander, but it’s not made anymore.
