Warp to World 4-1
In world 1-3 after you get the magic bottle/potion go all the way to the right until you reach the vase thing. Use the magic bottle/potion, jump on the vase and go down. Instead of not being able to go down you'll now be warped to world 4-1.

Go to level 3-1. Go to the waterfall and go down. Keep going until you reach the hill, go in the door on the hill. Pull up veggies until you get a potion. Go to the right and place the potion next to the pot. Enter subspace and go into the pot. You will be warped to the 5th world.
Warp To World 6
In the begining of level 4-2 jump down onto the whale and go to the left. You will find some red grass patches which will have a potion. Carry the potion through the entire stage, and rather than go through the door, you can jump on the last whale's tail and jump over a small gap to find a vase. Now drop the potion, enter the door and go down the vase.
Warp to World 7-1
Go to world 5-3 as Luigi. After you climb the first ladder, power jump (hold down until you are glowing) on to the platform you normally can't reach. Pull up the plant on the right side of the warp pot. Throw down the bottle and go through the door. In the dark world, jump on top of the pot and go down. You should see the screen wiggle and it will say warp world 7 on a screen with Birdo.
Yoshi Challenge & Finding Yoshi Eggs
After defeating Wart in World 7-2, you unlock a special Yoshi Challenge game on that file. It allows you to replay any stage in search of two Yoshi Eggs. Unfortunately, it gives no description of the kinds of areas the eggs could be hidden. The eggs are hidden in Subspace, but the searching for the egg is the challenge. Also, if you lose a life, you lose all of your eggs as well.
Yoshi on the Title Screen
To get Yoshi on the title screen, beat the game on Yoshi's challenge and instead of an egg,there will be a Yoshi.
