Bowser Lab, Pick "Very Scary Monster", Navel Piranha. Don't pick "Scary Monster, Huffin Puffin"... this will send you out of Bowser's Lab, and waste 1 mushroom.

Many Spaces, 1 mushroom
This isn't really a cheat but it's useful. Okay so let's say you want to go to Mr. I's house as peach so you can get his gadget. First you roll the die.
