If it's a new cluster, there's no need to disable auto_bootstrap. That setting prevents the first node in the second DC from being a replica for all the data in the first DC. If there's no data in the first DC, you can skip a couple steps and just leave it on.
Leave it on, and enjoy your afternoon. Seeds don't bootstrap by the way, changing the setting on those nodes doesn't do anything.
