Look on Craigslist in Orlando for cheap tickets. Lots of park employees sell their extra freebees. Also check ebay for vacation condo/house rentals. Lots of Internationally held vacation homes get rented by rental companies when not in use by the owners.
Think about skipping disney for a day and checking out Rock Springs at Kelly Park, 1 hour north of Disney in Apopka FL. Its a really cool (72 degree crystal clear spring water alternative to all the theme park madness. You can hike around a little and spend the day floating down the spring run in innertubes you rent outside the park for $3. Park admission is $5 a carload I think. Pack a picnic lunch or hit the concession stand.
I'd be really careful with buying tickets off Craigslist. It sounds like an excellent way to get burned to me.
If you are going and are going to spend several days in the parks, incremental days are really cheap. A seven day adult ticket is only a few dollars more than a 6 day ticket.
I'd spend some time at www.disboards.com doing research. There's a wealth of information. Also, check to see if your public library has the Unofficial Guide to Disney World.
