I think that the OP should consider doing LA, then San Diego, then drive up from San Diego to Anaheim on that Thursday (day 1 of Comicon). Go into the DL parks on Fri & Sat, fly home on Sunday. Or San Diego first, then LA, then Disneyland.Comic Con brings in about 170,000 people to San Diego that weekend. It's basically the weekend where all the downtown businesses go from Red to Black for the year. If you will be only going to tourist locations like Sea World and the Zoo, you should be fine. If you want to go anywhere near downtown/gaslamp to eat or stay it will be very very crowded. Your kids might have a lot of fun watching all the crowds in costume though. If I go to Hilton's site right now, everything in the areas I listed above are sold out. It really depends on where you are planning to stay if you'll be effected. The traffic coming south from LA to San Diego can be pretty terrible Wednesday and Thursday with all the studio people coming down from Hollywood also.
