Fans of Paramount’s Yellowstone know two things: you never ever want to go to the train station and Rip Wheeler ( played by Cole Hauser) is…nice to look at. The show follows the Dutton family, led by patriarch John Dutton are the owners of the largest ranch in Montana, the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch, and their constant struggle to keep their land as various entities seek to take it from them. Rip recently joined the family when he married Beth Dutton.

However, Cole Hauser was recently spotted with a different family (his own), on a different piece of property (Walt Disney World) sporting a brand new look. I wouldn’t have recognized him at all and I may be one of the biggestYellowstone fans there is. Gone was Hauser’s pitch black beard with ginger stubble in its place. He traded his cowboy hat and boots for a baseball cap and sneakers and all around just looked like any other dad at Disney World.

He shared snippets of his day in an Instagram post saying “Had a great time yesterday, Thnx to Julia and John and all the staff at Disney for a wonderful experience!” The post had a family photo in Animal Kingdom’s Pandora- The World of Avatar and a quick video on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom.

Fans were quick to point out the change in appearance as most are used to seeing him in costume and not his everyday look.

Some considerate fans commented that they hoped the new look helped Hauser stay under the radar. Celebrities at Disney World can often be bombarded by fans, making it difficult to enjoy a day with family.

Others just commented on how very different his appearance is without the costuming and hair dye.

The “every dad” incognito look was a popular topic. We have to admit, we wouldn’t have thought he was a celebrity if we had seen him.

Many, however, had train station jokes. I. Case you’re  unfamiliar,  the train station is a code word on the show for a dumping ground for the bodies of people that they uh…had to take care of. Rip Wheeler is frequently the one that deals with this particularly grisly task.

Celebrity sightings at Disney are always fun. Fans on social media love to post pics of their favorites that they run into in the Parks. Do keep in mind, though, that just like you, these people are just trying to have a nice family day. While it may be tempting to appro for a lic or an autograph,  it’s more considerate to admire from afar.
