BTW - here is a hidden Mickey on RotR that no one has seemed to have found. Just before the Kylo interrogation and the elevator drop...look at the panel to the right, with Finn on it. Lower-left of the panel.

I want nothing less than discarded concept art, animated vehicles dancing through blueprints, dissolves of satellite imagery, and lots of photos of construction (perhaps leaning on the Anaheim version’s more public vantage points), culminating in a multi-angle extravaganza of the whole experience. And ending with thank you’s and music that makes me want to put a tiger in my tank.

If you can sty long enough you will spot a few troopers moving. Heads turning arms moving - very very subtle, but it happens. If you are in the ITS again and you look out the front window as your ship is being brought onboard, you can see the stormtroopers running into the hangar room.

Nothing but the size of it and immersion to make you gasp. CMs will let you just hang back and gawk for a while. Sometimes a CM in a trooper costume will surprise you by interacting with you.

If you're asking whether a scene or performance of some sort is supposed to take place, no. It's honestly just a massive hangar that your shuttle got pulled into, so that's where you exit into as you make your way to the interrogation cells. The room itself and its sheer size is supposed to be the "wow" factor for guests. Essentially, just being in the room and experiencing it is what's "going on." Guests usually hover around in there for a few seconds to take a few pictures but, otherwise, you're just supposed to walk through it. Sometimes, especially recently, though, there's been a live-action stormtrooper or two commanding guests to keep it moving.
