Try something like...

mysql --password=mypass --batch --skip-column-names --execute="SHOW 
DATABASES" | grep -v "mysql" | xargs mysqldump --password=mypass 
--databases > dump.sql

This will export all databases, excluding the "mysql" database. You will 
of course need to manually migrate the user details from your 3 servers.
