  • Video USA Customs video - IllumiNations Soundtrack?

    Last week, my sister and I were part of our church's youth mission trip to Costa Rica. On Thursday night, we were rushing through Charlotte Airport's customs to catch our flight to LaGuardia. (We caught our flight, but our flight got so delayed that it missed LGA's "curfew" so we had to stay the night in Charlotte...)

    Anyways, I remember @TouringPlans had tweeted a few months back something about how much he "loves how the US Customs soundtrack is IllumiNations." I had no idea what he, (Henry? Len?), was talking about, but I made a note to send in the question to WDW Today or something.

    Instead, there we were in our group waiting in the Customs line, and I saw the normal instructions videos playing. But after that loop ended, the video below came on:

    And I was like, "THAT'S THE ILLUMINATIONS MUSIC! I have that on my iPod!"

    Other people must have noticed this before? I think it's an okay choice. I would have expected the U.S. to choose some more known American music, like Copland or Gershwin, to welcome travelers and immigrants. But this music fits! And it's a great score nonetheless.

[But I'm pretty good with the information, if I do say so myself. And you can hit me all you want with Walt Disney World.])

    Yeah, this video was actually made by Disney for the US Government as a donation. There was a new release on it at one time.

        Sorry. I meant a NEWS release. Not a new release. Here.

          Yeah I noticed that on my recent trip from the UK. I got really excited and was like "that's the Illuminations soundtrack!!" and my parents were like "uh, okay...?". I would have taken video and shared it here, but I didn't want to take a chance with filming Homeland Security and all... :unsure:

            That's really cool.

            I also remember ABC News using "IllumiNations" music during election coverage a couple of years ago. Must be the go-to inspirational soundtrack at the Walt Disney Co. :lol:


            And... something about the customs video makes me think of the film in the Norway pavilion at the end of Maelstrom.

              I see (and hear) that video every other week when I return from abroad into the USA.
