    The stuffs added in App_WebReferences folder is for generating client-side proxy code (for consuming webservice) at runtime. The .disco file is used for probing and locating the webservice endpoint and wsdl file is a local copy of the metadata (service description) of the target service. I think you're creating an ASP.NET Web Site app (rather than web project app), correct? And to your question, yes, you can copy the stuffs in App_WebReferences to target server/directory when you deploy the webservice, they should work. However, when the server-side webservice code changes or the service's location has changed ,you will need to regenerate the webservice reference or modify the service location in web.config file.
