In order to disable XAML designer loading in Visual Studio do the following ways.

1. Setting full XAML view

Go to Menu > Tools –> Option... > Text Editor > XAML > Miscellaneous > Default View > Check "Always open documents in full XAML view".

Always open documents in full XAML view

2. Using Open with and Set as Default:

We can set default editor as "Source code editor" for .XAML using open with option. Right click on .xaml file in project > click on Open with... > select "Source Code (Text) Editor" > click on Set as Default button > OK.
