Beats per minute tend to often be a determining factor.
If you compare Sylvester (DISCO)... to let's say something from Instant Funk (FUNK)... the BPM tell the story.
This may be simplifying things... but it's one good way to tell the difference.

I think the main difference between funk and disco is that funk tends to be rough and rugged around the edges while using breakbeats while disco is more four to the floor and pop influenced. Granted, the lines tend to be very blurred, as already stated, groups like Chic and Kool & the Gang straddled the line between funk and disco.
Knock disco all you want, but you really wouldnt have EDM and especially house music if it weren't for disco.
*insert witty remark here*
