Disneyland revealed Wednesday that it has submitted a proposed plan to reopen Disneyland and California Adventure in July.

Pending approvals from state governments, the company plans to reopen its parks, hotels, and shopping district in phases.

According to the proposal, Downtown Disney will open first on July 9. The theme parks -- Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure -- will reopen on July 17, followed by the opening of Disney's Grand Californian and Paradise Pier hotels on July 23.

In a post on Disney's official blog, the resort also provided some insight into how the parks would reopen and how they will monitor ticket sales and attendance.

According to the blog, attendance will be "significantly limited to comply with governmental requirements and promote physical distancing." Because of that, guests and Annual Passholders will have to make an advanced reservation.

Disney said additional details on that process would be released soon.

The theme parks have also temporarily stopped selling new tickets, Annual Passholders, and renewing Annual Passholders.

As the company did with reopening Walt Disney World, events that draw large crowds, such as parades and evening shows, will not return right away. Also, character meet-and-greets will not be available right away, though characters will roam the parks, according to the blog post.
