Train to Harry Potter studios from Madame Tussaud's

Hi, I'm planning our family vacation for July. Do you think it is feasible to do the following... Take the first slot at Madame Tussaud's at 9 am on a Saturday- I will try to be there by 8:15 to stand in line. Finish at MT by 11 am and then go to the Baker Street tube to Euston. From Euston take the train to Watford. Catch the bus from Watford to Harry Potter studios and start at the 1pm slot.
Is it enough time from 11 am to 1pm to get to Harry Potter studios from Madame Tussaud's?
Do I have to buy tickets in advance?
Or is it just quicker and easier to catch a cab there and then to call one to take us back to London when we are ready?
I am willing to splurge a bit on transport for the easiest and quickest route.
Any suggestions? Thank you, Aneesa

The first question in response has to be why you want to go to Madame Tussauds? There have to be better ways to spend your time in London.

Because I want to 'meet' and take selfies with waxy celebs, Bob. Lol
I've already bought Wicked tickets, am doing the hop, on hop off, visiting museums and palaces... Madame T and Harry P are indulging my inner movie and celeb geek. Don't judge. Haha :-)
I need transport advice please.

That's awesome info, Emma. Thank you. :-) I think the bus then the train. Do you know if the Oyster card works for the bus?
I looked online at ticket prices for Madame T and the Sat, 9am slot is cheaper by nearly 30 pounds for us as a family and online is much cheaper than at the door. If you buy online they want you to choose a slot and use a dedicated door on the day.
Lol - yes, I plan to embarrass my teen by taking more 'weird mom' selfies than her! Hahaha. :-))
Thanks again
