What model PS3 do you have?
If it is the 60 GB model i would say the casing could possibly be taken off to reveal the disc sitting inside. It is not something I have tried to do because i have gotten it out when i fixed the console. I will check it out later on when i get home to verify but i can't imagine there would be a mechanical automatic release switch. So unless you perform the YLOD fix I would think your best bet would be taking the cover off the BR Drive.
I wouldn't recommend sticking anything into the slot or shaking the console, it could damage the disc.
Ok i had a quick look at a 60 GB PS3 BRDrive and to be honest it is not something i would be willing to take apart and risk not putting it back together again. There doesn't seem to be any release switch, as i first thought, and when i took off the casing around the drive there were a few springs and mechanical arms needing to be removed from the drive in order to get the disc out. My advice would be to perform the YLOD fix
