And nearly everyone who has enjoyed the 21 Royal experience says they’d do it again. “It stands as the signature meal of my entire life,” said Todd Regan, who uses the pen name Dusty Sage while running the popular MiceChat.com fan blog, who’s no stranger to fancy meals. “It’s a culinary extravaganza.”. Here’s how it works: People call up Disneyland and tell them they want to reserve a private dinner at 21 Royal, held in an ornately decorated suite in New Orleans Square that was originally designed to become Walt Disney’s private apartment, though he died before he could use it. Then, after a date is agreed upon, there’s a consultation with a chef and a decision about the menu for the dinner, which is designed specifically for each party.

Convincing herself that she was capable of creating such a project tested Herman’s newfound confidence. “I started thinking, ‘I’m not good enough.’ But there was an exercise in acting where you had to own your talent. There was part of me that couldn’t own my talent, because the way I was trained was, ‘You’re never good enough and you always have to be better, better, better.’. “The people I’ve worked with in my career were the best in the world. So I always thought, ‘No, I can never be as good as them.’ But now that I’m older and more mature, I realized it was time to say, ‘I’m talented.’ And to own it. That’s hard to do.”.
