The Happiest Place on Earth is about to get a whole lot happier, thanks in large part to The Force.

For the first time in the park’s 63 year history, Disneyland will serve alcohol on the premises.

Alcohol and Star Wars fans alike will converge on Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge when it opens next summer. Among the attractions: Oga’s Cantina, which will boast a menu loaded with themed alcoholic beverages that will reflect the cantina theme (we wouldn’t be mad at an RIP Greedo tribute drink. Just putting it out there).

“Oga’s Cantina is the kind of establishment that attracts some of the most interesting and disreputable characters in the galaxy. And you never know when a stormtrooper or a familiar face will show up,” according to a press statement. “Patrons of the cantina come from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions created with exotic ingredients using ‘otherworldly’ methods, served in unique vessels. With choices for kids and libations for adults, the cantina will make for a great stop!”

Olga’s Cantina will also feature none less than RX-24—the RX-Series pilot droid who flew a Star Commuter 2000 from Lothal to Garel five years before the Battle of Yavin—as the house DJ.

Hardcord Disney fans will know that alcohol has always been available at Club 33, Disneyland’s elite private members organization (and is served as part of luxe 21 Royal dinners) that only a precious few are ever able to experience.

For the rest of us, Olga’s Cantina will be the spot to quench that thirst for some hard stuff. Once it opens, however, it should only be a matter of time before booze is available in other areas of the Happiest Place on Earth. Enjoy responsibly!
