Abstract: We argue in this contribution that secondary stable disks around evolved stars can be found over a wide range in luminosity all over the HR-diagram. The disks around B[e] supergiants form the high luminosity end of similar structures found around post-Asymptotic Giant Branch (post-AGB) stars as well as the recently discovered post-Red Giant Branch (post-RGB) stars. We focus here on the observational properties of disks around binary post-AGB stars and end with a link to the B[e] phenomenon.
