Is there any disadvantage to taking part in a regional interview as opposed to actually visiting the school. I realize that it's a great idea to see the facilities and talk to the students, but the plane tickets and hotel stays really add up. Would it reflect negatively on me in the interview?

Check out an MSAR, pretty much nobody offers regional interviews, making your question moot. Regional interviews are generally conducted by alumni, so it's not to your advantage to interview that way. It'd be much more in your interests to interview with an actual member of the adcom or someone who is reporting directly to them.

SLU offers regional interviews. I don't think it really hurts you. I know a few people that got in this way. Just make sure you visit the actual campus, etc. if you are accepted and thinking about going there.
