Did you check the Wilhelm Tell Express timetable we link to from this page? As you'll see, it leaves much earlier from Lucerne, so you wouldn't be able to cover the Rigi before heading off with the official Wilhelm Tell Express. Note though that you don't have to use this reserved upgrade and that you can also cover the same route using regular trains and boats (please find options in the timetable). That way you could still start your journey in the (early) afternoon and visit Rigi first. Arrival in Locarno will be a bit late,but whether that's a problem depends on your furhte rplans for that day.
I think you already found out that the Bernina Express route too can be done in regular trains, without any prior reservations.
So if you're not able to decide right now, you can do so while you're there and just board any train/boat you like with your Swiss Travel Pass.
