Zack and Cody finally have a seat in the posh Italian restaurant!
The fans of the beloved Disney show The Suite Life of Zack and Cody are reminiscing about a scene from 15 years ago, as the titular characters finally get a table at the posh restaurant they wanted to dine at more than anything else in the world. The iconic Disney show is making a comeback on people’s feeds today for a very special reason: the two main characters, played by real-life twins Cole and Dylan Sprouse, finally get to enjoy dining at their dream restaurant after a 15-year wait. Fans and Disney are paying tribute to the beloved show by celebrating November 16, the date of the boys’ long-awaited reservation.
In episode 16 of the very first season of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody in 2009, the show traveled across the pond to Italy, where the boys got the chance to visit Chef Gigi’s high-end restaurant. In the episode titled, “When in Rome…,” the two make their way into the establishment in hopes of getting a seat, and behold who do they run into other than the Chef Gigi herself!
The conversation between the boys and Gigi is now trending online.
The owner said, “I could squeeze you in at 7:30?” To which the two excitedly reply, “Perfect!” Only to have their hopes crushed, the chef added, “On November 16, 2023.”
Cody, in disbelief, said, “But that’s in 15 years!”
On the other hand, Zack tried to hilariously reason with her, asking, “What if I don’t feel like Italian that day?”
The episode ends with Zack having a meal at the restaurant with Gigi, while his twin brother is kicked out for his shenanigans.
Disney joins in on the trend
While the fans have been going gaga over this scene from 15 years ago, Disney took notice. In a new post, the official Instagram account of the studio confirmed that Cole and Dylan Sprouse’s characters will be going to claim their reservations. They posted a text screenshot of the restaurant confirming the boys’ presence.
She texted, “This is a reminder that you’ve booked at Gigi’s for dinner in 2 days, 11/16/2023. Your table is for 2 at 7:30 pm. Please reply “1” to confirm booking or “9” to cancel.”
The green bubble text confirms, “1.”
The twins had to wait over a decade to eat at the restaurant of their dreams, so you better believe they won’t cancel their crucial appointment anytime soon. While Cole and Dylan haven’t made any comments on the trending scene so far, it can only be assumed that the two might be on their way to Rome.
What does this mean for the future of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody?
With the boys finally getting their long-awaited reservation at Gigi’s, it could be a sign that Disney is considering bringing back the beloved show for a reboot or revival. After all, the show has a massive fan base that has been eagerly awaiting the return of Zack and Cody for years.
Only time will tell if this is just a fun nod to the show’s past or if it is a sign of things to come. But one thing is for sure: the fans of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody are all hoping that this is just the beginning of a new chapter for the show.
