If it is the Gartner conference, I checked their conference website this afternoon & they had a link to purchase tickets to all the Orlando parks, not just DW. There were "after 2pm" tickets listed (single park only--no hoppers) at a decent price. The link was to a ticket broker, similar to UT.

The email I got was from Disney a few months ago. It is sent to all of their "conventionears". There are a few links - like how to get the most out of your resort, etc. The link to purchasing park tickets works. However, when it lists the various ticket options, "after 2" and "after 4" it says not available.

So the plot thickens ... one person going to the conference can get them, and another can't? I agree with the OP --- This makes no sense!
If you drill down and following subsequent links you find a page that says this: "ONE-PARK TICKETS - (Available in 2-Day or 1-Day options) This one-park ticket entitles you to visit after 2pm one of the following parks: Magic Kingdom® Park, Epcot®, Disney's Hollywood Studios™, and Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park."
the link Eileen listed (I don't know how to quote) was the site I found yesterday. I may be purchasing DH a few tickets, or I may buy some longer passes for DD & I, because their prices are about the same I got a few months ago, but these include a waterpark day (or DQ or golf) & I will save the others for a future trip.
First trip DW--Nov. 1975; Senior Class Trip DW--Oct. 1979; First trip w/kids--Oct. 1995; Halloween at DW--Oct. 2002; Spring Break at DW--April 2004; Christmas/Pop Warner Nationals-POR--Dec. 2005;Cruisin'--April 2008; Mom/Son trip-POP--March 2010;Taggin' along w/DD on DH's conference-BWI--Oct. 2011; 50th birthday with the Gartner Geeks--Adults only!--BWI--Oct. 2012; The Trip That Almost Wasn't--BWI--Oct. 2013; We climbed The Summit (National Cheer Competition)--ASMovies--May 2014
Now I feel bad for wasting everyone's time. I clicked on my Conventioears email link today (I refuse to give up!), and it worked. It is not the third party site that Gartner had, but Disney. It ends up that for multiple days (I was going to purchase 4), it's cheaper to buy the whole day tickets. Thanks for all the help!
