    Illuminations at the Miami Airport

    I noticed this several months ago when I last flew into MIA, but forgot to post about it. My mind was jogged when I flew into Miami this morning though, so I figured I'd post right away before forgetting again.

    While waiting in line at immigration, the Illuminations music plays over the speakers while some lame "welcome to the US" video plays on overhead LCD televisions. I thought this was quite odd because Disney commissioned this music, right? It's most definitely the same music from Illuminations though.

    Does anyone else find this odd?

    Do you mean this video ? I'd heard about it a while back.

    This was quite popular news earlier this year. The video was produced specifically for immigration.

    ha ha - yeah. That's the video. It definitely doesn't come across as a Disney produced video when you're waiting in line. Maybe that's because I can only really associate that music with Illuminations - since I'm slightly obsessed with the show.

    I like how that blog said the taxpayers didn't foot the bill for the video. But, they never mentioned all the new 42" LCD monitors in all the international airports that were installed. I doubt Disney paid for those too.

    It only makes sense... I mean, Disney relies on anyone coming into the state for business.. so why not?
