To enter the lottery, visit Recreation.gov before this Sunday, February 28 at 11:59 EST and create a login to enter the Easter Egg Roll ticket lottery.
The site will ask you for your name, address, e-mail, etc. and then you will be taken to a screen where you can select the number of tickets you need (up to 6) and request different entry times. Ticket holders will be assigned a two hour window for their visit. Lucky ticket recipients will be notified via e-mail and on the Recreation.gov website on Thursday, March 4.
Having sat obsessively in front of the computer trying like crazy to secure just a few of the highly coveted 30,000 tickets last year, I have to say that this new system was a breeze to use. It took just a few minutes to register and enter the lottery which was a welcome change from last year’s system that made me rant about when good technology goes bad.

Good luck and be sure to let me know if you get tickets!
Huge thanks to Jeannine at PBS for sharing information about The White House Easter Egg Online Lottery! Like last year, PBS Kids is a sponsor of the Egg Roll and I’m hoping we get to see some of our favorite characters if we get to go!
I am sharing this information out of pure frustration from last year’s failed attempts to get tickets. Mentions of PBS are in no way connected to my consulting role with PBS Teachers.
