It will go in but it won't come back out, nor will it play. You would need a tray loading player to use mnis.

don't do it, you won't be able to eject it easily. Instead, it you really need to access it, put it in another computer (with a tray-loading) and copy the files on a usb drive or burn the mini-cd's content on a regular cd.

You could also get a USB cd drive and plug it in that way.

We've had a number of people make this mistake here on the Forums. In general, the most success has been had in turning the machine off, closing the lid and shaking the machine just a bit with the drive facing down. Do not do this violently. If you can get even a little bit of the disc to pop out, you should be able to use a pair of needle nose pliers to pull it out the rest of the way.

If it's stuck or you encounter resistance in doing this, don't force it and just take it to an Apple store. They should be able to remove the disc without having to replace the drive - although the mechanism may need to be removed in order to get at it.

Going forward, if you use non-standard optical discs, I would strongly suggest picking up one of these.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
