1) Correct.
2) Disney calls housekeepers, housekeepers.
3) The "Cousins" at Ohana comes from the casual usage in Hawaii.
4) Native Hawaiians address each other as "cousin". *

* You can do a Google as to origin, but the base reason is not a pleasant story.

It's usually "servers" which is the gender-neutral term. (It is generally considered more correct these days to use a gender-neutral term).

I never use Mousekeepers - way too cute - and am sort of glad there isn't a cute term for the servers.

You can always use the term "Cast Member," as that it how Disney describes its employees. So, the CAST MEMBER at Kona...California Grill...Narcoosee's...you get the picture.

Some locations have themed named but they are pretty much just called servers. For example at ESPN they are supposed to introduce themselves as your 'coach' although I have seen it done maybe one or two times.
