Disneyland Hasn’t Even Reopened Yet, and Things Might ALREADY Be Changing

Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are both set to reopen on April 30th, 2021. So far, we’ve taken a look at California’s updated theme park reopening guidelines and more details about the future reopening.

But soon, some regulations that could impact the reopening will likely be changing.

California has been using a color-coded tier system as part of its reopening process. Counties are placed in specific tiers based on a number of factors including the number of new COVID-19 infections. Rules and regulations regarding capacity at restaurants, theme parks, etc. vary depending on what tier a county is in.


As of right now, Orange County (where Disneyland is located) and Los Angeles County are in California’s Red/Substantial Tier. But, that looks like it will be changing soon.

According to the Los Angeles Times, California health officials recently announced that both LA County and Orange County are set to move into California’s Orange Tier. This movement to the Orange tier is set to become effective tomorrow, Wednesday March 31st.

How does being in the Orange tier change things in those counties? 

Well, under the Orange tier, restaurants and movie theaters can raise their indoor capacity to 50% capacity or 200 people (whichever is less). Changes can also be made in terms of capacity at retail stores and other locations.

In terms of the theme parks, there are some changes that come with the Orange tier there as well. In the Orange tier, capacity at theme parks can increase from 15% to 25%. Indoor capacity at theme parks will also be allowed to increase from 15% to 25%.

And, indoor dining at theme parks (which isn’t allowed at all in the red tier) can be allowed for a maximum of up to 25% capacity.
