My guess then is that the convention decided not to offer them. (I'm guessing they have to give a kick-back to Disney or something.)

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!

OP... I'd call the conference coordinators to find out if there is a newer link for tickets.

Sorry -- I missed the part about the name of the symposium. A quick Google search picked up their page, and on that page is a link to discounted tickets (look at the bottom.)

Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2011 | Orlando CIO and IT Leader Event

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."

Good luck and enjoy the parks!

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.

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!
