moving a cast iron tub
That's exactly what I had to do when I remodeled our bathroom last year. It was not easy at all, but the stud space in the open wall at either end of the tub were critical for having enough room to tilt it down into place from standing on it's end.
We had 3 people and it was doable. Use straps to hold onto it while lowering, so you don't catch a finger between the edge of the tub and a stud, plumbing fixtures, etc. That could be ugly.
Personally I'd take that toilet out first. Takes 5 minutes, and gives you a lot more space. And of course remove the door.
When removing a cast iron tub I'd hit it a couple times with a sledge-hammer, so I can carry out five 60 pound pieces, rather than one 300 pound piece. Assuming it's going into a dumpster.
