- Ceramic disc 100nF vs Mono ceramic 100nF

I have in my collection of capacitors, some ceramic disc 100nF and
monolithic blue ceramic 100nF.
Can they be substituted for each other? I have been having a difficult
time searching for anything that is conclusive, or for that matter
anything suggesting a use for the mono's.
They are both 50v, 100nF, ceramic type.

Yes, in all but the most critical cases where the circuit relies upon
a some very specific characteristic of the capacitor.
Low dropout voltage regulators are one example where the capacitor can
be fairly critical (the 7805 is not one of these, so is much more
