Reply to "Disagree on something."

I was asked "Do children get more pleasure receiving gifts than adults do?" I said:

"I'd have to disagree on this one."

Is 'disagree on' correct?

Hi, Ashraful—We can say that we disagree with people on certain things, and that we and others disagree on certain things. Your sentence is faulty from a pragmatic standpoint. One cannot disagree if no assertion has been made.
