Tips or advice for flying with a 18 month old!

My son is 18 months old, and I will be flying 2 1/2 hours to Florida next month. Not a long flight, I know, but, y son is very active, very loud, and can be very uncooperative!! He's get bored extremely easy and screams if he's not allowed to move around. I'm going to bring books and toys, food and portable DVD player, but I know all this will probably only work for 30 minutes tops!! Anyone have any other ideas?

In addition to your ideas, which are all wonderful you could also walk the isles with him. We flew from Seattle to Florida, which is an 8 hour flight with our son and we ended up having to get up and move around with him a bit. There is no way regardless of how many things we brought for him that he'd sit for that long. The 2.5 hours will fly by! You could also let him look out the window and talk about the different things you see. I'm sure you'll be fine. Good luck! :)
