I think that one fantasy almost every kid had was the dream of living in a hotel. From 2005 to 2008, Disney channel explored all of the adventures and mishaps that would come when a pair of troublemaking preteens, a hardworking young student, and a frivolous hotel heiress spend most of their time together living in a hotel under the watchful eye of the hotel manager.

To set the mood, here's a quick refresher on the show's intro and theme song from the first season:

So what are these former teens, tweens, and their fictional guardians up to today? Let's find out!

Zack and Cody Martin - Dylan and Cole Sprouse

Even though they were twins, Zack and Cody Martin could not have been more different. Cody was calm, mature, and studious, while Zack was impulsive, outgoing, and a bit immature.

After Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Dylan and Cole Sprouse have worked almost exclusively with Disney on shows like Wizards of Waverly Place, Hannah Montana, and their spinoff show The Suite Life on Deck, which ran from 2008 to 2011. In 2011, both twins accepted admissions to New York University, where they are currently students. Overall, the twenty-two-year-olds seem to be doing really well!

London Tipton - Brenda Song

The heiress who coined the phrase, "Yay me!" was the only daughter and heiress of Wilfred Tipton. Although somewhat vapid and materialistic, she was never a particularly mean or bad character.

Following Suite Life, Brenda Song also reprised her role as London Tipton on Suite Life on Deck. She's been appearing in both film and television including playing Christy in The Social Network, Alissa on [Scandal](series:755840), Daisy on [New Girl](movie:781595), and Veronica on [Dads](series:1017896). She has been in an on-and-off relationship with musician and Miley Cyrus' brother, Trace Cyrus, since 2011.

Maddie Fitzpatrick - Ashley Tisdale

Maddie Fitzpatrick was the Tipton Hotel's hardworking and intelligent candy counter girl as well as an environmentalist and sometimes Zack and Cody's babysitter. Maddie spent most of her time working hard jobs to earn money. She's almost the complete opposite of her best friend London.

Following Suite Life, Ashley Tisdale famously played Sharpay Evans in Disney's High School Musical movie and it's sequels. Recently, she's been doing mostly voice acting work, most notably as Candace in Phineas and Ferb and Sabrina Spellman in Sabrina: Secrets of a Teenage Witch. Tisdale married the lead singer of Annie Automatic, Christopher French, in September of last year.

Carey Martin - Kim Rhodes

Carey Martin was the single mother of Zack and Cody and a resident singer for the Tipton Hotel. Even though she was busy working for most of the show, she was always there for the boys when they needed her.

Kim Rhodes continued to play the twins' mother on Suite Life on Deck before moving on to other television roles like playing Vicki Bowen on Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street and Sheriff Jody Mills in [Supernatural](series:200506).

Mr. Moseby - Phill Lewis

Mr. Moseby was the stern and slightly pompous, manager of the Tipton Hotel. Although he acts like the children annoy him, he actually cares about them all a fair bit.

While playing Mr. Moseby, Phill Lewis also played Hooch on Scrubs from 2005 to 2009. He, like many of the other cast members, reprised his role for Suite Life on Deck. Lewis then voiced DJ on the animated TV show Total Drama and then played Special Agent Wolfie on Special Agent Oso.
