Welcome to the forum, airy2310. I think your itinerary looks good; it's not too full and should be doable for a 6 year old too. You can check the timetable
to see traveling times exactly.
As for a rail pass: since you indicate that you prefer 'free and easy', you should definitely look into the Swiss Saver Pass
. This allows you to get on and off board whenever and wherever you want. You don't have to buy tickets for most trips and can easily adapt your travel scheme if weather conditions or other circumstances require you to do so. An 8 day Swiss Saver Pass would be ideal (it's even cheaper than a 6 day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass). You'll only need additional discounted tickets for the Titlis and for the Jungfraujoch trip up from Wengen/Grindelwald. The rest of your trips is for free, including the Swiss leg of your trip to Venice (up to Domodossola).
Please refer to the Swiss Pass page
for details, a validity map and all purchase options. Be sure to check the current promotions
too. Please keep an eye on the forum
, where offers and promotions are listed, and on the reseller overview at the Swiss Pass Page. A local purchase may be cheaper right now, but things may change quickly due to promotions, reseller prices and exchange rates.
You can get a free Swiss Family Card along with your Swiss Saver Pass. This is also mentioned at the Swiss Pass page I referred to. It allows your child to travel along with you for free on all routes.
