Welcome back Debflint, I'm glad to see you planning another trip to Switzerland!
Full tickets for cable cars and boats (Lake Brienz!) add up quickly. For a week in Switzerland I assume a pass to be a good investment, unless you are sure you will only do 1 or 2 of such trips. Most drivers pick the Swiss Half Fare Card: myswissalps.com/ swisshalffarecard. Check the map for what's discounted with this card. An occasional train trip will be discounted too, e.g. to travel back to your point of origin after a boat trip.
While ordering two cards for the adults you can request for a free Swiss Family Card to get the 8-year old free traveling (the 5-year old goes free anyway). So that's an additional benefit. From the UK, the cards can be printed at home through www.swisstravelsystem. co.uk.
To be absolutely sure you can do the math as explained here.
