You can find the hiding option on Exchange Management Console, select the disabled user, properties General tab, at the end you have the option Hide From Exchange address list.

get-mailbox "Disabled_User" | set-mailbox -HiddenFromAddress
ListsEnabled $true

 Or this will do this operation for all disabled mailboxes:

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited |Where{($_.UserAccountControl -like “AccountDisabled*”)} | set-mailbox -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true

Open up the exchange management console

Recipient Configuration > Mailbox > Properties > General Tab > Check Hide from Exchange address lists

You will probably have to enable the mailbox 1st in order to hide it from the GAL.  You can then do a manual push of the GAL or it should update everyone's GAL by tomorrow.  Default GAL update push I believe is 4:00 am
