What's the old tub made of?
How wide is the door opening?

After you remove some drywall the tub will tilt the hole using the open stud bay----tubs are usually 14 to 17 inched tall and will go through and common door opening.

Most tubs can be remove whole after the drain and overflow have been removed---

Some times cracking a cast iron tub with a sledge hammer is the easiest way----

That is 25 inches deep---that should be able to wiggle into the room through the 24 inch door---

door framing is 26 inches---removing the door frame might be needed, but I doubt it---

I hate busting up a cast iron tub with a sledge hammer. Be sure to wear ear plugs.
Is sometimes the best way to remove the old tub.l
