So today on my other computer at work some of the pictures of Seamus meeting his first characters during our Disneyland trip in November 2005. We were still living back in Rochester, NY at the time but knew we would be moving out to AZ in a few weeks (for me) and a few months (for Kelly and Seamus).
We took direct flight from Buffalo to Phoenix on SouthWest. Here is Seamus in his seat on the plane. We spent a night or two in Surprise visiting our friends who I was coming out to work for in a few weeks. Then we drove to Disneyland for a couple nights at Paradise Pier Hotel. We had rented our DVC points to a friend and used some of the money for the stay on property. I found a good deal as we got closer to the trip that made us make the move to on property instead of off property location.
The night we got there, after we checked in we went to the pool deck of the hotel and watched the 50th celebration fireworks. The next morning we did a character breakfast at one of the restaurants of the Paradise Pier Hotel. At that breakfast Seamus met his first characters. The first of which was Stitch, who showed up after he was getting fussy, so he was crying BEFORE the picture below.
I am pretty sure that he only did two rides that trip. The first was at DCA where he did the carousel that they have, and the next day he did "It's a Small World", which since we went in November was under its Holiday overlay so it was more tolerable as the holiday songs were mixed in with the usual music.
Below is a gallery of selected pictures from that trip.
