It may seem impossible, but Disney Imagineers invented two unique colors especially for Disney, Go Away Green and Blending Blue and believe it or not, they're everywhere around the world. Disney parks.

If you have ever visited any Disney park or even one of its hotels you've definitely seen one of these colors or more likely, you've seen both.

And you certainly didn't notice those colors there, and even less did you notice why they were there. In fact, that's exactly what Disney intends with them.

The truth is, Go Away Green and Blending Blue are two of the most used paint colors at Walt Disney World Resort.

However each one in particular was designed by Disney Imagineers to be ignored by your eyes.

Do not believe? No problem, let's start by looking at a small example.

Can you see the Go Away Green in this Adventureland photo?

Looking at it quickly you don't notice much difference in this entry if you've seen it in person or in a photo, right? And it really doesn't look any different.

But let's compare it to a photo where Disney didn't apply their magic color. Can you see the difference?

Did you see? Let's check out a little more about these amazing Disney colors and techniques that make your ride always magical without you even realizing it!

Go Away Green

The Go Away Green was designed by Disney to “erase” buildings from behind the scenes and camouflage the walls of buildings from your view.

As the workers obviously cannot decorate everything and the building walls or siding will be dismantled at some point, the solution created by Disney is to make these places blend in with the environment making them disappear from your sight.

The Go Away Green is a brown/gray/green color scheme that your eyes will naturally ignore.

Unlike the bright orange build that your eyes see well, the Go Away Green is just the opposite.

The paint color is suitable for small areas such as garbage cans or construction fences.

It can also be used on larger areas like the back of Buildings or entire buildings like the image below.

During the construction of the Remy Rattatouile attraction in Epcot, the entire building was painted Go Away Green.

Blending Blue

Lesser known than its green cousin, Blending Blue came on the scene when Walt Disney World was built.

The sky was very blue and, unlike Disneyland California, in Florida there were no buildings or constructions around Disney to disguise the constructions.

This meant that Disney engineers (Imagineers) needed to disguise or blend these new buildings under construction with Florida's more open landscape.

They called back the scenic department in Anaheim and asked for a blue pigment formula that would match the Florida sky, otherwise known as the Sunshine State.

Painters mixed a formula to match the sky and applied it in Florida, but the color didn't match the bright blue horizon.

It matched the much duller blue of the California landscape.

Engineers went back to work on formulating the new color, and finally, the Floridian hue of Blending Blue was created for the Walt Disney World Resort.

This tone is still used today when Disney needs to build or renovate more open areas of its parks, as seen in the image above.

We never get tired of hearing stories like this that show us the effort made by Disney in every detail.

And it is precisely these details, often hidden from our eyes, that transport us to a truly magical land in Disney Parks.

Other Disney Camouflage Tactics

Go Away Green and Blending Blue aren't the only paint colors Disney uses to distract guests.

There is also another tone known as “No See A Gray”.

This third color is presumably used where natural vegetation is less abundant.

However, you may also notice that there appear to be trees, plants, and sometimes, simply piles of dirt positioned around Disney theme parks.

Part of the purpose of the greenery is to hide anything that might spoil the magic of you being “isolated” at Disney.

Disney World also uses hidden tunnels to keep things running smoothly. Magic Kingdom.

When Cast Members need breaks, vendors need to restock, or employees need to take out the trash, they go down the tunnels.

They can take care of daily activities without ever being seen by guests.

This is all to show how Disney is concerned with the “magic” effect inherited by what Walt disney wanted to pass on to your visitors.

Get your Parks Tickets at a Discount

Many people leave to buy their tickets when they arrive in Orlando or even on park day.

We absolutely do not recommend that you do this for a number of reasons, such as:

If you buy tickets on the spot, you won't be able to book your park days in advance at the risk of not even being able to enter a park on a given day.

You will lose valuable park minutes in line to buy your tickets.

AND MOSTLY, you will pay more because tickets at the box office are more expensive than buying in advance!
