You can also try: Restart the computer. As soon as you hear the tone when it is starting, hold down the mouse button, and the disc should eject.
Also, I'd avoid that disc in the future. I just had a huge issue with a disc I burned not ejecting, and had to go to the Apple store to get the disc out. For some reason, the disc was hanging the computer. If the contents are important for you to have on your MacBook, try copying them on a thumb drive or external hard drive to transfer them to the computer.
Sorry - missed the part where you tried the restart & mouse button.
The disc came out at the Apple store with a gentle shake - highly technical, I know, but it worked for them.
If you have another bootable drive (bootable version of your OS on an external drive or a BootCamp drive) you can try booting from the other drive and see if you can get that to eject.
You can also try starting iTunes and attempting to eject the disc from there.
The last option I know of is to restart the computer, and immediately after the start tone is to hold down COMMAND, OPTION, O, & F keys to open the firmware. When you get a prompt, type: eject cd and press RETURN, then type mac boot and press RETURN.
Hope any of these help.
