What should I make sure to do before I sell my MacBook and upgrade to the new MBP?
Pop the factory OS X disc in, run disc utility, format the drive (I'd do the multi-pass method, I'm paranoid like that), and re-install the OS fresh, so the new owner gets the factory Welcome screen.
1. Reinstall Mac OS X
2. Clean everything
3. Fix anything that is broken
After you transfer/back up your data, etc, you will probably want to reformat the drive on your old Mac and reinstall the OS that came with it from the Restore DVDs
You can do a security pass on the drive from Disk Utility

If I don't have an external hard drive, can I back up my photos and stuff to DVDs?
Yeah I'd do the Security Multi-Pass wipe to be very sure. You can definitely backup to DVDs.
remember to de-authorize the computer for your iTunes account
