This is the first time Disney Princess Merida is taking to the ice here in St. Louis and she received a very warm welcome from the local Scottish community.

"We're very excited that Princess Merida has joined us all the way from Scotland to be part of Disney on Ice," said Mark Sutherland, St. Louis Scottish Games.

Princess Merida is the star of the Disney-Pixar film Brave, a movie set in the Highlands of Scotland.

"This is a new experience for us. It's such a great way to kind of be welcomed into the city and welcome Merida to the ice show and see all of the Scottish clans having as much fun doing their dances as we do on the ice when we do it in our section of the show as well," explained Joanna Webber, Disney on Ice.

Disney on Ice Rockin Ever After takes the ice at the Scottrade Center Thursday-Sunday. Tickets range from $13-$75. You can purchase tickets at
