I have always thought that using the word disorder to refer to the state where energy is evenly distributed is incorrect. In that state the energy is completely ordered. Disorder word apply to the iniial state where the distribution of energy is most non-uniform.

The black hole entropy is an area because the energy distribution is assumed to be uniform and such constants in the analysis are neglected. String theory gives the same answer for black holes because the number of states in the black hole is summed neglecting the amount of energy in each state.
