The main ride building for the Guardians of the Galaxy indoor coaster at Epcot will apparently have a unique color pattern. A new photo shows that dark green, light green and sky blue walls are being installed in an attempt to conceal the building from guests.
The photo above, courtesy of WDWMagic user MatthewWho13, shows that the green panels are about level with the treeline before shifting to sky blue. At this time, we don’t know if any additional theming will be used beyond the “go away” color scheme for the sides facing into Epcot.
Here’s a couple more views of the building’s exterior walls. The first photo shows that the colors blend into their background pretty well.

Disney was always going to have a hard time deciding what to do with this enormous building. If they used some sort of Guardians of the Galaxy theming, they’d permanently alter/ruin many of the views around Epcot. Meanwhile, trying to conceal a building that will house one of the longest indoor coasters in the world isn’t an easy task.
It’s too early to pass judgement, but so far the gradient approach appears to be working fairly well.
