Next year, the force is coming to Disneyland Resort in California and Walt Disney World in Florida — and now the booze is as well.

When Disney opens its new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge zones at the two parks by the end of 2019, it won't just add two 14-acre sites to the respective locations, representing the biggest single-themed expansions each has ever seen. In addition to all of that, Galaxy's Edge will also feature a Star Wars-style cantina. And, at Disneyland, it'll also mark the first time that alcohol has ever been sold on the premises.

Yes, we've definitely got a good feeling about Oga's Cantina, which'll serve up boozy tipples at both of its locales. It'll also offer non-alcoholic drinks for younger visitors, including blue milk, plus music to complete the hangout vibe.

The cantina forms part of Black Spire Outpost, the village within the Star Wars zone, and comes with a backstory. It's "run by an intriguing alien proprietor, Oga Garra," according to the Disney Theme Parks Blog, and boasts "a history of being a smugglers' safe haven and a popular stopping point for those seeking to avoid the authorities".

As for the rest of Galaxy's Edge, it's designed to "transport guests to a never-before-seen planet, a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life." To be specific, fans will be able hop onto a star destroyer, fly the Millennium Falcon and just generally wander around like they're part of George Lucas' space-opera world.

Expect more details to be unveiled as Galaxy's Edge's opening inches nearer — and for the attractions to tie into all ten Star Wars movies to date, and feature an array of beloved characters making an appearance.

Eventually, visitors to Disney World will also be able to stay in an immersive Star Wars-themed hotel too, although construction hasn't started yet and an opening date hasn't been announced either.
