Blending Blue Disney Paint
So, we’ve given Go Away Green examples, but what about the second specially Imagineered color. Disney’s Blending Blue became very important when building Walt Disney World in Central Florida. Walt Disney World is 27,000 acres with almost no limits on how large attractions or show buildings can be. Ever notice how much taller buildings are in Walt Disney World vs Disneyland?
For that reason, Disney World Imagineers knew that their taller buildings would need more help blending into the beautiful blue Florida sky. Disney Blending Blue can be seen throughout all of the Disney theme parks in Florida, one of the most famous being Cinderella Castle spire tops.
One of our favorite examples of Go Away Green and Blending Blue is the brand new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind show building. On that building alone, you can see a gradient from Go Away Green to Blend in Blue! The building is so tall, it passes through the tree-lines and high up into the sky. Disney had to get creative with its paint choices.
