California theme parks could reopen sooner if the state legislature approves a new proposal.

Right now, places like Disneyland, Universal Studios, and Six Flags can only open when their counties are in the yellow zone.

That indicates minimal spread of COVID-19.

The new plan would treat theme parks like smaller venues allowing them to open in the orange tier.

That means they could operate amid moderate spread of COVID-19.

Disneyland closed in March of last year when the coronavirus pandemic took hold in the United States.
