Disposable Diapers in Landfills

I would like to know how long it takes disposable diapers in landfills to biodegrade? I heard a comment on a documentary that said that plastics will be here if the everything else on the planet perished! I realize that he probably meant industrial strength plastics, but really; how long do disposable diapers last once they hit the garbage heap?

That question made me choose cloth diapers because they're less expensive, are better for my baby and better for the environment. Every once in awhile when we travel we have to use disposables and I can't help but think of all the disposable diapers in landfills piling up higher and higher and know that this diaper is going to be here for another 500 years and that is not cool!
