I think best thing to do is to "bind" your mysql service to the ip address in the internal network in which it will not be accessible to the internet directly. tho the ip addresses you have given are all private ip addresses. then all your clients or application servers will refer to that binded ip address.

To follow up if you bind mysql service to a specific ip address lets say only to 192.168.2.x and not thru localhost which i think is the default. you dont have to disable any NIC.
