Hi Alexis2323,

You can read exactly how to get to Mt. Pilatus from Luzern here. I would follow the route laid on on my link, take the cogwheel train up.

I'm not sure what pass you mean by "3 day pass"? There are several rail passes available for 3 days. Are you referring to The Swiss Travel Pass? If so, it does cover that trip - read about what is covered by the Swiss Travel Pass here.
