Beware of Cheap/Discount Tickets

AAA does offer discounted tickets but in most cases it's a very small percentage. You might save anywhere from $5 to $20 per ticket but I have found that in the overall cost of a WDW vacation, this discount isn't more than a drop in the bucket.
You can try some travel agents who specialize in Disney. Magic for Less Travel or Magical Vacations are a few that are specialists. Typically what they do is purchase rooms at a group rate and then try to sell these block of rooms to customers. Along with the room discount, they are usually able to offer discounted park tickets as well. That being said, the discounts for tickets still aren't great. You probably won't find 50% off or anything like that.
You mentioned that you're trying to encourage your friend to stay on property. By using a travel agent, they may not get huge savings on tickets, but they might get a great discount on rooms. For example, Magical Vacations was able to offer me the Polynesian Resort this summer for $230 per night. That's extremely cheap for a delux resort. Normally, the Polynesian is well over $300 per night.
One thing to watch out for when using an agent however, the discounted tickets are usually park hoppers (or Magic Your Way with hopper options) but you won'tbe able to add the dining plan or some other features. Just be sure to ask ahead of time if there are any restrictions.
Finally, one last way to save on tickets is to purchase them online or even the Disney Store in your local mall.
Hope this helps. :mickeykid
