Seized brake discs

Is there a easier way than WD40 and hammer to unseize a brake disc from a hub?

Have you opened the bleed valve on the caliper? (don't let brake fluid get on your paint)
You may try to place a pry bar between the edge of the rotor and the calipers.

I use a little heat from a propane torch. Heat the drum or rotor around the area that it fits on th hub. Use a little force at the same time. Sometomes hitting the axle hub during heating the drum or rotor will pop it loose. I almost have at least one that will be stuck. Good luck.
