I have a four year old and I've been flying with her extensively (Fl, CA, Europe, the Caribbean) and I kind of see both sides of this. But I have to say this to the original poster ...

You will be fine. You won't end up like those people on the news who get kicked off planes and miss their Disney vacation. You will not have a particularly "good" time on the plane, but you will survive.

No one expects your toddler to be perfect. If she kicks a seat quietly correct her, apologize and make sure it doesn't happen again. End of story. One of my most valuable tips, I've taught mine to sit like a pretzel, legs crossed or folded on the plane. But it didn't happened overnight.

Not to beat a dead horse, but you need headphones. They have child-safe ones and they are a must. Why should a child not have to follow the same rules as everyone else? If she pulls them out and the sound blares for a second, apologize and fix it. End of story. If people glare at you for every little mistake there is nothing you can do and you just move on. Mine loves the head phones for about an hour and then takes them off. But, because we've been enforcing the rules, basically since birth, she know that means no sound whatsoever. There are some great apps, even for a little ones that don't require sound. The color apps are a god-send and you spend less time fishing crayons off the floor.

We're living in a society. No one gets to sit on a plane in perfect silence never being disturbed. At the same time, we all can expect a parent to occupy their child and comply with the rules....
