Seders and young children - a question

So, now this year's seder approaches (we only do the first night with the whole family - about 30 people or so), and I know my DS will likely want to chase the older ones wherever they go. What do you think is reasonable to expect from children during this holiday? My aunt was talking about setting up a video for them in a corner (we rent a room in a catering hall, since we're such a big group). I offered to bring my tape of The Prince of Egypt, to at least be in keeping with the holiday. But she laughed and said it would more likely be a Rescue Rangers tape they'd watch. I know I'm being idealistic, but I'd really like the holiday to actually have some sort of meaning for my son (though he's obviously too young now to understand any of it). I would never tell our cousins how or when to discipline their children - I don't feel it's my place. But, I am wondering how to keep my little guy from getting too out of hand, without it seeming like a punishment, or taking the fun out of the holiday.
Sorry this got so long! I'd love to hear thoughts from BTDT moms!
