  1. Once you've got... I think 10 stars. You need a certain number before it'll happen, and I think you need to be playing as Mario, but once it does, you'll notice it.

    When you get a certain number of stars, a skylight will appear in the center of the castle's first floor lobby, shining down onto the sun pattern in the center of the floor. Use the camera button to look up at the source of the light and you'll be transported to the Wing Cap area. There's a Castle Secret Star that can be obtained here by collecting all 8 of the red coins, but if you just want the red blocks activated, fly down to the tower in the center of the map and hit the switch. All the red blocks in the game will become active.

  1. when you get 14 stars you go to the center sun and press x. Then you go to the rainbow tower and press the big button and all of the blocks will be solid.

  2. When you get certain amount of stars then sunlight would be entering the castle. Press X and look at it. You'll be flying above and there will be your switch.

  3. First of all, you need at least 14 Power Stars, and you need to be Mario. If you have both of those things, go to the main lobby in Peach's castle. There will be a light shining down on top a sun on the floor. Stand in the middle of the sun, and press X. When you do this make sure you are facing the big staircase. If you were facing the stair case, press down on your control pad and you'll be teleported to where the switch is. To activate the switch, you need to fly down to the shortest tower (the one right in front of you) and ground pound to stop flying. After you've landed, run up to the red ? switch, jump on top of it, and all of the ? blocks in the entire game will become solid.

  5. First, you need Mario, then you need to go to the center. You see the sun circle on the ground, step on it and look up [anywhere]. You will be sent to a level. You will notice that your flying. There are 8 coins and a place to land. This level has a secret star. The place where you land will have a switch. Touch it and voila!
    Now if you wanna go back, you jump down.

  6. In the entrance of the castle after about 10 stars, a light will turn on. Stand where it is shining and then go into first-person mode. Look at where the light came from and you should go to a level. At the end of the level, ground pound the block and the blocks should now be visible.
