    You have to open it up and take it out yourself, or ask someone else more experienced to do it for you.

    You're not the only one dumb enough to do this.
    I've seen this posted before.

    As suggested previously, opening up the console is your only real shot it at.
    Shaking it lose could work.

    Its not hard to open the Wii, provided you have a tri-wing screwdriver... You just need to keep track of the screws on a paper with labels is all. The rubber feet on my Wii were disintegrating into a melty, sticky mess. I had my Wii on my desk, and was loading the SD card with apps when I went to stick the SD card back in it. I accidentally stuck it in the disc slot, since the front of the unit was facing away from me. But once I got it opened, it was easy to shake and the card fell out.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    sadly my family does something similair with the car cd player, they like to put some bills or receipts in the cd "hole" but since we don't use cd's anymore, i don't care

    disconnect everything, gentle open the drive hole with some tool, try with a store\credit card i don't suggest a butter knife...
    put the wii upside down, gently try to shake it to remove.. try to use a flashlight to see where the sd card is

    as you were "dumb" to use that slot as a sd card holder, i really don't suggest you to disassembly the thing by yourself...
    i would ask your dad or uncle or neighboor, someone which is used to tinker with electronics.. to open it up...

    Prying it out with something non-metal while pressing eject really is the best way to handle this. If it cannot be done easily then disassembly is the next best option.

    PSA: If you get a disc stuck: still butterknife. Use it to mash a piece of adhesive tape onto the disc then pull on it while pressing eject.
