Composition[edit]

"Destiny Islands" is approximately one minute and thirteen seconds long in Kingdom Hearts. For Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, the piece is extended to two minutes and forty seconds. For Kingdom Hearts II, the track is shortened to one minute and ten seconds. In Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX, the piece is approximately one minute and fifty seconds long. For Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, the piece is one minute and eleven seconds long.

Regardless of the game, the lighter texture and tone is very evident with each version. The wide variety and use of auxiliary percussion instruments helps establish and maintain the tropical tone. The piano serves as the primary source of melody, with the trumpets occasionally joining in towards the end of the looped section. The arrangement played in Kingdom Hearts II is unique in that it does not follow the same lively tone as the other games. In this version, there is no use of percussion instruments, which naturally creates a softer, calmer tone. This more mellow sound is only enhanced by the use of the French horn and clarinet. However, the tropical tone is still established by the pan flute and "scratching" of the guitar, the latter playing in a style similar to a flamenco. The version played in Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories is also much calmer in nature. The version that plays in Kingdom Hearts Re:coded is very similar to the original Kingdom Hearts version, but now features the steel drums as the main melodic voice instead of the piano.
