Can't say if 10 days Anaheim is too long because I don't know your kids. Anyway there's a lot more to see if you want to drive (and relocate) like Legoland Carlsbad, Seaworld and Zoos in San Diego and countless places in LA. It's just one hour between Anaheim and Hollywood by car but rushhour traffic can be horrendous and of course you'll have a lot of beaches nearby. If you want to see San Diego attractions I'd stay in San Diego and if you want to do more places in LA like Universal I'd stay Hollywood.

For things to do I'd check the local forums for Anaheim, San Diego and Los Angeles.

I think, for most people, a 10-day pass for Disneyland would be too long. As others have said, there is plenty to see in the Southern California area and, in general, it's recommended that you spend a few days at Disney, and then explore LA/San Diego and beyond.

November in Southern California will have average temps in the high 60's to 70's, low in the 50's, it should be quite pleasant, though I'd expect some rain. Remember the American Thanksgiving holiday is generally the 4th Thursday in November, which for 2014 will be November 27, 2014. The days around Thanksgiving are very busy travel days, (Wed, Nov 26 & Sun, Nov 30 should be some of the busiest travel days of the year) and flights and hotels tend to be high priced at that time, so if you can avoid that week, that would be advised. Otherwise the weeks in November leading up to Thanksgiving are relatively quiet, a nice time to travel, and often one of the cheapest times of the year.

As an FYI - do note that should you ever want to visit Disney World in Florida, it is much larger, very different, and more expansive than Disneyland in California, and in Florida, a 10-day pass would be just fine.

Enjoy your trip!
