Because it is an Apple security measure, the only way to fix a disabled iPad is to erase it and, hopefully, restore it from a backup. However, if you don't have a recent backup or any backup at all there could be significant data loss.

You can read more about the process here:

In the future, if you forget your iPad passcode, we can send a command to your iPad to clear the passcode that won't cause any data loss, as long as the iPad isn't disabled and on a network.
