Advance to the Fourth Dark World level:
This trick can be done as early as after completing the First Dark World dungeon. Note: The enemies in this level are very difficult if encountered earlier in the game without the preparations the other dungeons will provide. After you have gained the Magic Hammer, enter the Lost Woods by the farthest left entrance in Kakariko village. Once inside, turn right, then exit. Bash the two different spikes. Under the stone is a portal. The only point of entering early is getting the Big Key and Golden Gloves very early, saving the Smith, and getting the Level 3 sword before even entering the second dungeon. This makes the rest of the game up to the fifth or sixth dungeon much easier.
It works, got the Titan Mitten and the Fourth Bottle
Whoever wrote this hint was talking about going in from the light world into the dark world, maybe because he/she hadn't figured out how to get across in the dark world from the eastern side of the map to the western side.
Either way, once you are in the dark world, and you get to the plaza (you will see the marker for the 3rd crystal right on top of it), you can go in, and you don't have to finish that area if you don't want to, just explore around and you'll find the chest with the Titan Mitt.
Hope this helps
