Unfortunately, no there isn't. Once the device is disabled, the data is no longer accessible. You have found how necessary it is to be backing up a device on a regular basis. Backing a phone up to iTunes just requires that you configure that one time, and then every night when you plug the phone in to charge, while connected to your wi-fi, it backs up automatically.


You are going to have to restore your phone to remove the passcode and make the phone usable again. If your Apple ID is locked or disabled - Apple Support
