Hi Jbarreto and welcome to MySwissAlps.com!

I can only advise on the Swiss part of your journey. As you would like to travel by the Glacier Express and the Bernina Express, I recommend the Swiss Travel Pass instead of the Swiss Half Fare Card for the adults. I think you would save more with that pass. You can compare the 2 options, use our spreadsheet, which will help you to do the math. You can download it from here: www.myswissalps.com/train/ticketspasses/practical/chooserailpass.

Learn more about the passes:

Make sure to reserve your seats on the panoramic trains well in advance:

As you are going to Italy and coming from France you might find these useful: www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/italy and www.myswissalps.com/traintickets/france.
