After they vanish, the Airport Disk Utility still sees them, but gives a nonsensical error message when you try to remount. Restarting everything sometimes fixes the problem, and sometimes doesn't, and sometimes it just fixes itself. All very irksome.
I saw a thing on the Apple support site about what I thought was an unrelated problem: iTunes sees my Airport Express routers that are connected to speakers, but won't connect to them. (another problem that just suddenly started manifesting out of the blue). Apple recommends setting IPv6 to "off" in the Network Preferences on the computer (the default setting for IPv6 is "Automatic.")
I did that and it solved the iTunes issue - currently the Airport Disk's are showing on the desktop - too soon to tell if the IPv6 change might've fixed that problem too. I'll report back. One way or another, someone (i.e. Apple) had better come up with a fix for the disk problem, because the Airport Disk feature is the only reason I bought the router!
