Disneyland’s Star Tours ride has transported fans to a galaxy far, far away for years, but days before the ride’s maiden voyage to Crait some fans discovered a very famous stowaway on board.

While addressing a group of passengers, a Disneyland employee named Chris notices the inclusion of a special passenger that the captain forgot to mention had come aboard the ship. If fans didn’t pick up on the reference to the Force, Mark Hamill’s speedy entrance—and the immediate reaction from park attendees—sealed it.

Luke probably hasn’t left Ahch-To in many years, but if the captain ever needed a break, he could probably just take over flying the ship.
