"With the increased distribution of the vaccine, with the behavior of Californians who have taken this pandemic seriously, who have adapted their behavior accordingly … we feel like this is a good time to begin to provide additional visibility into how we can move forward opening parts of the economy,” Dee Dee Myers, senior adviser to Gov. Gavin Newsom, told reporters.
Once counties progress to the orange tier, which is the second-lowest level of caution for COVID-19 spread, parks can enter into the 25% capacity range, reported the Los Angeles Times. In the lowest tier of yellow, they will be allowed at 35% capacity.
Attendance will still be limited to in-state visitors only, and there will be restrictions on indoor dining and limits on indoor rides, according to state officials.
Disney previously considered moving some operations from California to Florida over prolonged closures in the state due to the pandemic.
A travel advisory also remains in California, which urges residents to avoid venturing over 120 miles from home or to other states or countries, except for essential travel reasons.

Everywhere that you can sunbathe naked around the world – mapped
BRITS wanting an even tan this summer can head to one of many nudist beaches around the world.
Last month, we rounded up the best nudist beaches in the UK, with more than 40 to choose from for when the weather picks up.
However, swimwear brand Pour Moi has now created a map to help naturists find the countries which have nudist beaches, with more than 687,000 Google searches made by Brits for nude beaches.
Pour Moi founder Michael Thomson said: "We know a lot of our customers like to ditch their swimsuit when they sunbathe, and with tentative steps being made towards international travel opening up, we wanted to help people find out where you can and can't go topless when you sunbathe."
He added: "It's been fun comparing which countries are most interested in sunbathing naked, versus what the actual nudity laws are in that country."
The map, using a traffic light system, shows which countries it is legal to be naked in, and which it is not.
They explain: "The 38 countries in red are ones where public nudity of any kind, even non-offensive public topless sunbathing, is completely unacceptable or illegal."2The global map shows most of Europe and the US allow naked sunbathingCredit: Pout Moi
Green countries, of which there are 39, are "pretty relaxed" and have a number of locations which allow it, while the 29 amber countries are where laws are "ambiguous or contradictory," of which they advise: "These places will require a bit more research before taking off your swimsuit."
Grey areas are where there is not enough classification for nudist sunbathing available.
There are also four US states which do not allow sunbathing naked - Utah, Indiana, South Carolina and Tennessee - while six others are in the amber zone.
The majority of Europe is in green, with lots of official and unofficial nudest beaches which includes Spain, Greece and France, as well as the UK.
The best nudist beach in the world is also found in Europe - head to Playa de Bolonia in Spain for the very best.
