Thirty years have passed since the most famous Disney twins were born – Dylan and Cole Sprouse. Their life changed completely after they became Zack and Cody.
Both twins, Dylan and Cole, first appeared on television when they were just eight months old. Before their big break, the Sprouse duo acted together and individually. Their fame skyrocketed after they became Zack and Cody, the two most popular brothers during the late 2000s and early 2010s.
Almost 20 years later, fans of the series can now stay in the Tipton Hotel, whose real name is Fairmont Copley Plaza located in the heart of Boston. Guests will be able to see a close look at the areas where the series was filmed, such as the Gold Lounge, and experience the “suite life” on the Presidential Suite – if you feel fancy.

Zack and Cody became their breakout role in the Hollywood industry and Disney Channel. However, the brothers had already appeared on popular TV shows and movies, such as Friends and Big Daddy, respectively.
But nothing comes close to the popularity they achieved through their own show, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. The popular series premiered in 2005 when they were 12 years old, It was focused on the two troublemaking brothers and their antics while living in Boston’s fanciest hotel, the Tipton.
Reports from the New York Post revealed the salaries of Disney’s most popular actors, and what they received per episode. Dylan and Cole were paid a staggering $20,000 per episode, becoming one of the highest-paid male actors.
Due to its high numbers on viewership, Zack and Cody was given a spin-off show, Suite Life on Deck, until 2011. Viewers practically saw the two brothers grow up through the different seasons, spin-off shows, and movies from the same title. The pair were 18 years old when they decided to part ways with their successful journey on Disney Channel.

The Sprouse brothers’ success is reflected in their many nominations and awards, as well as a large following.
After years on screen, the dup decided to take a break from the world of television and finish their studies. Both went off to New York University and completed degrees. Cole majored in Archaeology and Dylan in Video Game Design.
During an interview with Seventeen, Cole revealed the reason he decided to take a “detox” break was that “he needed a dose of reality”. Developing his answer, the actor told: “There was a feeling of machination; I felt like an automaton”.
After a long time in front of the camera, it was natural for the twins to want to take a break.
