Disabling services is obviously very subjective and dependant on your personal situation and business needs. Take a look at the following articles which suggest some services you can set to disabled. However, no 1 site is the same so pick and choose wisely.

I would run the Security Configuration Wizard which will give you a proposed list of services to change/disable
