The Phantom Five in Disneyland, with two owls behind them.

The Phantom Five are a group of ghostly minstrels that appear in the graveyard scene of the Haunted Mansion. Each has their own instrument: one a small harp, one a horn, one a flute, one a bagpipe, and one a set of bones to pound the tempo with on a tomb. They have their own music tracks separate from the base track, and a family of cats and some owls join in as well. They are known for not being the best music group. Interestingly, what they are seen playing is not always what was actually used for recording. For the bagpipe player, an oboe was used because a bagpipe was too hard to work with. Some tracks, like the flute, were recorded playing the music backwards, and the track is played in reverse, to create odd breathe effects.


  • Because they are more famous, the Singing Busts are often missed by fans with the Phantom Fives (or, more exactly, many believe that "Phantom Five" is the name of the Singing Busts). This is evidenced by the fact that if you type "Phantom Five" in Google, lots of pictures of the Singing Busts appear within the first results.
