180 Years After People
Despite the fact that most of Disney World has collapsed, three rides still stand: Expedition Everest, Big Thunder Mountain and Spaceship Earth. Which of these monuments to the past will last the longest? Only time will tell.
200 Years After People
Expedition Everest, the last remaining structure in Animal Kingdom is on its last legs. The fall of the Yeti 190 years earlier damaged the rides' foundation and being submerged in over 30 feet (9 m) of water isn't helping.

1,000 Years After People
Spaceship Earth is the last reminder that Walt Disney World ever existed. It sits in the middle of a swamp, submerged in over 100 feet (30 m) of water, rising more and more rapidly. Eventually, two of the pylons give out, having lasted 1000 years. The entire sphere rolls over onto its side, and is sunk. Walt Disney World is now gone, the Magic has ended for good.
