Go Away Green The Paint Color Disney Doesnt Ever Want You To See

If you know anything about Disney, then you’re already aware that nothing in the parks (or anywhere else they’re in charge) is done by accident.

There’s a reason for every single choice – and that includes the decision to paint something “Go Away Green.”

“It’s a grayish green that is designed to blend into its surroundings. The goal of this color is to cause objects to fade into your color spectrum so that your eye misses it completely.”

Disney uses the color to paint things like fencing, fire hydrants, trash bins, pipes, and the “business” buildings that are necessary but not for guests.

Some people do notice, though, and are posting their observations to TikTok.

“I just saw that they’re painting the border over here from the walkway of the Grand Floridian – and there was legit, straight-up Go Away Green in a paint can. I’ve never seen the actual paint-paint.”

Disney does use other colors to blend unseemly items or buildings into their surroundings. Some are meant to blend in with the sky, skyline, dirt, or foliage as well, according to the popular Disney blog Inside the Magic.

You can grab similar shades from top brands, if you have something you’d like to paint to “go away.”
