Fans of the beloved Disney Channel series The Suite Life on Deck, starring twins Dylan and Cole Sprouse as Zack and Cody, are experiencing a wave of nostalgia as a dinner reservation made 15 years ago finally becomes a reality.
The iconic moment, originally aired on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, featured the twins attempting to secure a table at an Italian restaurant.
In the memorable scene, the Maître d’ informs the young duo that she will have a table ready for them on November 16, 2023.
Fast forward 15 years, and the day has arrived, prompting Disney Channel to share a clip of the scene on its Instagram page, accompanied by a faux text message confirming the long-awaited reservation.
As fans reminisce about the passage of time, sentiments of nostalgia and amazement fill the comments section. One viewer reflected, “I remember watching this episode and thinking that’s so far away,” while another expressed disbelief, saying, “I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S BEEN 15 years, I watched this episode live.” The comments section is also flooded with fans tagging Dylan and Cole Sprouse, inquiring whether the twins will honor the fictional reservation.
One fan pleaded, “@colesprouse @dylansprouse if you don’t show together in some Italian restaurant you gonna make us cry. WE’VE WAITED FOR 15 YEARS,” while others playfully reminded the twins, “@dylansprouse @colesprouse your table is ready for tonight!” The anticipation among fans is palpable, with many expressing their hope for a social media update from the Sprouse twins enjoying an Italian meal.
Amidst the excitement, the realization of how much time has passed is underscored by the maturity of the original cast. The Sprouse twins, now 31 years old, have taken different paths in their careers, with Cole gaining further fame in the series Riverdale, and Dylan recently tying the knot with Victoria’s Secret model Barbara Palvin.
Ashley Tisdale, who portrayed Maddie Fitzpatrick in the series, is now 38 years old and a mom to two-year-old daughter, Jupiter. Brenda Song, famous for her role as London Tipton on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, is also a mother, with two young sons, Dakota and Carson, alongside her partner, Macaulay Culkin.
As fans eagerly await a possible reunion dinner post from the Sprouse twins, the 15-year anniversary of the fictional Italian reservation serves as a heartwarming reminder of the enduring impact of cherished childhood shows.
