Add a CD/DVD eject menu to your OS X menu bar, which has a drop-down menu to pick the disc to eject... It's an Apple-supplied function that just needs to be turned on. Launch this item:

Root level of your drive/System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/Eject.menu

Voila! (You can also turn this on with the cool utility TinkerTool.)

While you're in that folder, you can add the Applescript Menu by launching "Script Menu.menu" in the same folder. (The rest of the menu items in that folder have checkboxes in their respective System Preference panes.)

You can also add an eject button to the Finder window toolbar. With a finder window open, hit:
View--> Customize Toolbar
