Scenic route from Murren to Ortisei

In July, I need to get to Ortisei in one day using the Half Fare Card and Saver Day Pass. I was planning on going Muerren to Mals/Malles via Disentis Muster, using the Glacier Express train from Brig to Chur.

However, due to a slight change in plans, I will also be taking the Glacier Express route from Chur to Zermatt the week prior, so I would prefer a different route to Ortisei.

Here is one route I was suggested but I can't find this itinerary on SBB (the Postbus):
Muerren dp by train 7.36 - Meiringen ar 9.07, dp 9.25 by Postbus via Grimsel Pass - Nufenen Pass to Airolo ar 12.56, dp by train 13.13 - Milan ar 15.50. Milan dp 16.15 - Verona PN 17.28/17.50 - Waidbruck 19.47/19.59 - Ortisei ar 20.27

If there's no great alternative, then maybe it's best I take the fastest/cheapest route.

I think that is an extremely tiring plan and overly complicated.

I would take the 805 EC from Spiez to Milan (ar 1037) then the EC at 1205 connecting in Verona to the Frecciargento arrival in Bolzano at 1514 then bus to Ortisei.

Thanks, Laurel. I will definitely consider this route you have suggested. The downside to this route, correct me if I'm wrong, is that it's not scenic, comparatively. The above route goes over some really nice passes by Postbus.
