Earlier this month, California public health officials announced that all theme parks statewide can reopen as soon as April 1 once the counties they are in enter the red tier of the state’s reopening blueprint.

Orange County moved into the red tier of the state’s reopening blueprint this week, which allows for theme parks to reopen beginning April 1. They have been closed since March of 2020. Under the guidelines, they will be allowed to reopen at 15% capacity, but with in-state visitors only.
Visitors are limited to groups of no more than 10 and from no more than three households. No indoor dining is allowed and tickets must be purchased online in advance.
