How to Beat Secret Boss: Julius

In Traverse Town you will get the opportunity to battle Disney's Julius. He is pretty simple. The lowest level I would try at would be at least 55. I used to keyblade obtained in The Sorcerer's Apprentice world. Also you need to have a deck consisting mostly of baloonras and baloongas with a curaga or 2. All you need to do is use a form of baloon repeatedly until you win, simple. After defeating him you get the keyblade Ultima Weapon.

How to Obtain Non-Story Keyblades

Keyblade Name-How to obtain
Divewing-Get gold on all dives
Ultima Weapon-Defeat secret boss Julius
Unbound-Complete every Secret Portal
Sweet Dream-Complete Flick Rush
End of Pain-Complete all Special Portals

Tricking your 3ds on AR Scanning

The 3ds has no technological capability of tell a real card from an image off the internet. You can literally point you 3ds to the computer and it picks up the image of the AR card regardless if it is an image. Therefore allowing player to get the special dream eaters using an image instead of the real thing

Rare Dream Pieces(Easy Finds)

Before playing a Special Portal, Save your Game at a Save Point. Then, go to a link Portal(Pink Dot on Map) that says: "SPECIAL PORTAL" in the Description, and complete it.
After completing the portal, if you did NOT get the Rare Dream Piece you wanted, Quit, and Restart your game without saving.
Then, redo the selected Special Portal again.
Repeat this Process as many times as many times as you want until it gives you the Rare Dream Piece you want.
NOTE: ONLY Save BEFORE playing a Link Portal. NOT After! Otherwise, this trick will NOT work!

Very Easy EXP Points

This method is not fast. All you have to do is get the ability EXP Walker from the Skelterwild Dream Eater and go to an open area in a world. Get a rubber bans and wrap it around you 3DS so that you are running in a circle. You get one EXP per step. If you have EXP Chance ability and you get your HP to 25%(when the sound starts going off) then you get 2 EXP per step. You can do this while you sleep to get level ups.
The location I use is in the worlds La Cite des Cloches in front of the clock tower. I defeat the enemies and that leaves an open area with plenty of space to run in circles.
