Good news for those of you in California and for those of you waiting to visit California. According to officials California is heading for economic reopening on June 15.
Here’s what’s changing:
- Removal of capacity limits
- Removal of physical distancing requirements. So everything can reopen to full capacity …if they choose to do so. That’s still up to the location.
- Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 will not be necessary for a lot of things, except “mega events”
- Outdoor live events with more than 100,000 people, are recommended to verify vaccinations/negative tests. If you do not have those you may still enter with a mask on. This is a recommendation not requirement.
- Indoor locations with 5,000 or more should implement almost the same procedure. This time non-vaccinated people need to show a negative COVID-19 test or they can’t enter. This rule is state mandated.
The restrictions on travel from outside the state will be lifted.
The Walt Disney World Automated Permit Bot on Twitter is currently monitoring it now.
WDWAPB will now check for the tag “only California residents may visit the parks” on the Disneyland website.
However, I do believe they’ll have an announcement before this is removed from the website.

Yesterday it popped up in feed 8 or so times with this message. It appears to be a glitch though. They are monitoring it, if you want to follow them for notifications.
The notices have been removed. I just happened to have my browsing window still open with them on it.
Sorry about that. Don’t push staging to production on a Friday before dinner. Will have the out of state check fixed soon.

Here’s what was showing up:
At this point you can expect out of state travel soon, but at least not until June 15th.
